    Mike,

    Sean posted pictures on the Three Rivers Fly Shop forum. The second picture shows the release level last year. The third is the current release level. The amount of water being released is amazing. I'm hoping Sid's shop is okay.

    Normal flow is approx 81 cfs at the dam. Today they are releasing 5185 cfs at the dam and with the flow out of the generators they are at 8175 cfs. Its looks like the inflow is finally slowing down.

    The good news is no rain in the forecast for SE Oklahoma for the next week.

    Any chance these heavy flows will wash away this "rock snot" I hear has been found there? I'd hate to think this algae, or whatever it is, could end up ruining the trout fishing on the LMF. Anyone know if it will help?

    Wow, that's some major damage. Fishing my favorite spot on Spillway Creek would put my head two feet under that water rushing over the bridge.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
