Re: Montana River's spring runoff dates
Yeah, nice work Skibum. I love the USGS tables, that was a bit of work pulling all those together, thanks.
I just glanced at the Rock Creek chart - it doubled in four days in mid May. And not just doubled but went from a high but very fishable 535 to lethal 1060! In four days! That is amazing. And as with the Yellowstone, this is for experts with familiarity of the river, only. A guide not familiar with the upper channels took the wrong one last year and died.
It's gonna be another blowout this year, now it's just a matter of when....
