Crappy weather! Raining or blowing or family issues for me. So, my fishing schedule is waaaay behind this season, hoping to catch up here sometime soon. IF we get any stable weather, that is...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Ditto on Jonathon's comments, The Muskegon is near flood stage and has yet to crest due to near 7" rainfall over much of area upriver. Pretty much all streams around here are way over wading levels.

Headin' for the UP next week, an 11 day trek and no real timetable or schedule to follow...just rambling around from one stream to the next!

Fished Tuesday on a popular Michigan river, the weather sucked, lots of wind!All I had to do was pick my line up and let the wind carry at will. I caught lots of small fish and maybe 3 decent fish, all browns. It would be nice to have some nice stable weather, and now I see this river is blown out. I hope things get better before Tuesday, that's fishing with Mike day. I gotta new rod for my 60 th birthday a gloomis nrx 5 wt. man I love that thing! So for the Michigan crew heres to no rain and no wind for a while.

Addendum to high flows and flood stages,

I frequently check the USGS WaterWatch website for Michigan and get real time flows in CFS and depths for specific sites the streams I fish, plus a lot of others I have yet to wade. Lots of data such as historical flows, mean/extreme, percentile ratings and more...I can compare the information with what was happening my last time on stream and get a good idea as to wading safely or not.

OR simply note that things are in the "98th percentile and 356% of normal flow' which is pretty indicative of 'don't even think about it'.

I would guess since this is a National service it would be available for most or all states as well. A good resource, IMHO.

Rouge you are so right, the USGS site is my favorite, I check it at least two to three times a day. This is a helpful site that I don't mind paying for, with that said things still look kinda of shakey next week. We don't need any more rain for a while, had 4 inches Thursday. Oh well just gotta deal with it.
