Ups and Downs

If you haven't figured it out yet, as the tribs between Wolf Creek and Great Falls rise, they drop the flows coming out of the dam. I was told by a credible source who works for the State that they are doing everything they can to keep the flows at Ulm under 24,000 cfs. That's the level of water that is still safe enough to not have significant flooding. The Dearborn, Little Prickly Pear, and the Smith are rising and falling as we get rain and the snow pack hasn't really even started in the high regions. What this means is the flows between the dam and the Dearborn will fluctuate more significantly than below the Dearborn. My guess, (and it is just a guess,) is that fish will be more stable down low and as long as there is still good visibility, they should be more consistent in their holding spots. The problem is, is the visibility hasn't been very good at all. Soon though. Soon.

Keep 'em where they live...
