    I use it all the time, it is very useful. If your main fishing area is in the stream/river category, it is likely they have it on the map. Each site is different but most contain the gage height and discharge. Some have the precipitation levels as well as a few other parameters. I love it, if you havent heard of it, try it out!

    whew, I should come fishin with you, bet theres been some real hawgs caught in there! Mud puddles around here top off at 12 inches. I think the USGS also measures the gage of water in clogged gutters, at least they measure the water in the gutters on our house! Yesterday I caught a huge one out of my window. Good luck fishin mud puddles, i love your signature:lol: :lol: :lol: couldnt help writing something about it, believe me if I had thought of it before you it would have been my signature.:big_smile:

    Best tool on the web for fisherpersons! USGS makes up for the weatherman not being able to predict flies on a dogpile. Very effective for tracking conditions near a stream gage.

    My son and I monitor the Great Miami RIver every day. That link, and the link to the Mill Creek across the street both have realtime updates (15 minute intervals) for both gage height and precipitation. Makes it easy to perdict if we're going to have any flooding when you can't see the water at night.
