Re: Well, what now?

Well, it looks like it rained a little less than predicted and the river looks to top out at @11' by tomorrow. But hey, it will be down to 9' on Friday!

Re: Well, what now?

This was the first summer since the 90s that I did no wading at all. Yard is mud. Tomatoes all died. Boats getting mildew. Make it stop!

Re: Well, what now?

I walked the C&O canal to Widewater with my dad yesterday and the water was RAGING on the main river.

This side of Sherwin Island usually has almost no current, and the water was flowing up to the bluff walls. There was a ton of debris going down the river.

Re: Well, what now?

The river topped out at 21.39’ at noon on Saturday. That’s high!!

It dropped 11’ in 2 days but will still be at 7’ by Thursday. It may be fishable next week.

I went by Sunday and took a couple pics.  Some crazies were jet skiing and one guy was putting in a Bayliner…yikes.

Re: Well, what now?

I just stopped by and the river and the water had some green in it...or maybe it was a wishful mirage.
