Default Water Levels 5/10 - 16

Heading down to the NC side of the mountains for a little R&R (read that as "fishing").

Any updates on water levels at mid-elevations?

Oconoluftee, Noland, Deep, Bradley, etc.

Default Raining some more...

We've received a pretty good dose of rain the last 7 days. Take a look at the precip monitor for Bryson City:

And another storm passed through this morning. The rain is just now hitting the NC side of the mountains. I would monitor this one to see roughly how the streams are doing:

If thing settle down, fishing might be good starting on the 12th or 13th. I would stick to smaller streams before that...

At 3:00, Weather.com shows another Big Nasty from Nashville north heading east! Most appears in Southern Ky for now!
