    This information may have been given on a previous thread, but for those that don't know about this website, it is great for planning trips!

    This site allows you to access water level data and flow rates for thousands of bodies of water throughout the U.S. It is great for planning trips and you can access data for the entire month! I am using it now in GA to watch the Coosa River, which has been too low to even launch a boat. Rather than waste a trip and be disappointed, I can just check online. The same is true for the Wabash River in Indiana, which can often times be too swift to get to my favorite spots!

    It has been very helpful for me!
