Big Hole River 196 cfs
The flow rate of 196 was taken at 1:15 this afternoon and by this evening it should be at or over 200 which is the magic number to get it reopened. It will have to stay at 200 or above for 7 days to get her open. With the extended forecast it looks good barring any unforseen problems.
I took a drive over to the Jefferson River yesterday and it looks good and has a present flow rate of 450 cfs. I talked to a couple spin fisherman there and they said they caught two rainbows which measured 21 and 23 inches. The river is fairly clear for the Jeff and no moss.
Things are looking good.
