Rock River is on the Rise

The rain and snow melt is increasing the depth and flow of the river. Here's the USGS prediction graph from this morning:

That makes this a decent flood for this year. It's sure to be above the wall at the dam.

Water discharge, velocity and temperature in Ft Atkinson are available here :From the USGS

For your reference: 5 Celsius is approximately 41 Farenheit. 6 Celsisus =42.8. In my experience, the Rock River run really gets started when the water hits 44. White bass will move in when the water hits 50-55.
