Have any of you canoed the Oswego this week? I'm wondering what the water level is like for a trip.
Surprising. I thought the level would stay up longer.
I constantly refer the "Water Watch" because I like to keep abreast as to conditions for fishing trips. The Oswego gauge is one that I find perplexing. It has been showing extremely low readings of late. After heavy rains, it improves but then rapidly declines within a week. I remember when the rains wiped out the bridges over the Batsto and Mullica a few years back, and then with the approach of Hurricane Sandy the Governor ordered all dams lowered in anticipation of heavy rainfall. In the case of Stafford Forge I know the dam level has never been restored back to pre-Sandy, but perhaps the dams in Harrisville were changed recently ? IDK , just speculating, Also the people at Franklin Parker have been screwing with the river in their park, and I was told that one of their dams broke already (from the Duck Unlimited project), so I don't know if that is a factor either.
A new daily record for 23 May, I'm thinking.
Far from it... Its high but check it out a week after rain stops
Note that I said "daily" record. In other words; no May 23 date has had more flow in the recorded history of the gage. And unless I'm simply reading it wrong, today is a record too:
The highest recorded peak at 9.54 feet on 8/20/1939 is the day after the Blue Comet wreck on 8/19/1939.
Like 15 inches of rain that day, right?
Only the Oswego gauge. Fills up and empties right out
