This trip offers lodging, meals, and all the on-stream education you'll ever need to unlock the mysteries of this beautiful, yet very difficult piece of water. Be sure to click thru to read more....

January 7, 2009 - 2008 Rainfall Recap

After all is said and done, 2008 precip totals across the state pretty much finished-up close to their long-term normal. Upon closer look at the data though suggests we made up a bit of a deficit due to a very wet December - - especially here across the SE'ern portion of the state. The summer trended normal-to-dry, and was capped off with a very parched August. It will be interesting to see what 2009 will bring. A wet summer would be nice. 2003 and 2004 was the last time we had very trout friendly conditions throughout the summer months with timely rains. 2006 was also a very wet summer, but that year's summer data gets skewed due to the 100-to-500 year flood that took place in late June.
