Re: Adventures in a Storm Drain!!
Update Part 1.
This update contains no fishes...however, Part II ( coming this afternoon ) does contain fishes.
so bare with me.
This is just to how much water can flow there here and how fast it can change. On 4/18, in less then 12 hours we got over 2" of rain. The creek hit a max stage of 14.5' and 3800 cfs, these pictures are the creek at ~12' stage and 3400 cfs
I usually walk across it at this point haha
MEGAWORM!!! I wear a size 11 shoe for reference
And here it is, 36 hours later, essentially back to normal. 2' stage and 19 cfs
Gravel bar in the middle is new ( it also made a shelf under the bridge that very fussy carp were tailing on last night )
Normal crossing point if Im doing the short loop ( 4 miles instead of 5 )
Fishes coming in a couple hours, I PROMISE!!
