Yes, hydrometric graph showing steady drop with only a little bump yesterday, still dropping though...

Vis 8 inches yesterday, the clay slides will make fishing tough during rainy periods, may improve with colder weather.

I thought visibility was about 12 inches again today, some said it was more, I guess it depends when you look or some clay has fallen into the rive as it did 20 years ago, it is good one minute and then out the next. Lucky for us that live close.
