    The last two weeks I been fishing, the river was at 9 1/2 feet on the gauge at the Y-bridge. All this rain has fixed that, This morning when I checked the USGS site the level was 14 1/2 feet and rising. Thats a five foot rise since monday. It makes for terrible conditions on the river with all the floating logs and debris. Not to mention dangerous at night. Looks like I'll be sittin at home this weekend or might try bank fishing. But I hate bank fishing LOL.

    I am going to be there about three pm. Josh of course you are welcome. That said, there will only be space 1 fisherman aboard the Dostie funship. I plan to fish near the culvert.... Thanks Josh. Josh if you want to go I will drive if you want to come to the lot. Gary the same but 1 person only on the toon and I don't know if Jack is coming, and being he is my consistent partner he has 1st shot at the barge. Anyone else up for a mini gathering? lol!
