Well , the incee weencee spider will have to go up the spout again. It and most rivers were washed out. The thunder storm was a warm 62 F and the foliage of the trees and grass limited its damage to the rivers. The warm precipitation is good for the flora, but hard on us for fly fishing. The rivers this past week end were productive but high, right on the edge. This added water pushed them back into the flood plains and silt is back.
The Maple is holding it's own but the tannin is dark again. With more rain it will have some trouble and need a day of rest.
The Sturgeon valley flows right into the river but could recover in 24 hours due to its fast flow. The year 'round waters between Indian River and Wolverine might recover by Wednesday.
The Pigeon will take a day or so to recover follow this last rain.
The Black River in the Pigeon River Forest Country hasn't had a chance to settle down this season and is still hard to fish.
More rain is in the forecast check back as we will keep you posted as the rivers change. Just going to be a difficult week with all the rain.
