Guess it hadn't made it to the lower then yet... I left there at around 12:30 and it was still looking nice and green with about 3+ feet vis.

Didn't rain all day while out... River was in great shape at 4pm.  Raining pretty good now tho.  So won't know till first light.  If I can get up i'm heading put again FL.  I'll update when I get to the river.

They are expecting 50+mm of rain in the next 24 hours, that will definatly have an impact on the river. Looks like the river levels are on their way back up.

No rain yet.  Looking grey tho. I found one beauty, pity I screwed up the first tail attempt.  I didn't get another chance.  :'(
