Black swamp

Postby duckman87 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 11:56 am

Me and the guys are makin a trip up to black swamp. The report said flooding is at 50%, just wanted to know how deep avg. depth is at 50% might be and can I get my boat around since I've never visited it before. What's the duck movement like?

I strongly suspect that the level will be at 100%, and then some. Flood stage at patterson is 8'. Look for the predictions above to be conservative. It'll push 11' before this water drops out. Duck movement will be relative to water levels and wildly unpredictable, as that river is prone to 2' drops or rises over a 12 hour period. Getting your boat around should not be a problem.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.
