After the rain!!
« on: December 21, 2018, 03:39:08 PM »
Overnight my commitments changed for this AM...so!!!  I looked at the river gauge and it was still at 11 feet.

We had 2.5 inches of rain overnight in my yard rain gauge and the run behind my house as well as Middle and Penns Creek were running bank full...






The rain stopped by 10 AM and the stun was beginning to show itself.



Air temps were 60 F and water 37.5F...The water was beginning to cloud up and rise... and the bass wanted to eat before this happened.....(click on the link for river stage prediction)

By noon the south wind started to blow and I left...but not before enjoying seven 2.5-3.5 smallmouth. The only picture I took was of one of the 3 pounders with black spots on his fins and back.

I'd have seen all those signs of high water and found something else to do! Way to go and beat the rise! We were at 66 F here today, felt good, as I'm sure it did there. The James rose 10' today near my home.
