In Brevard county the river is way way down. Camps have been dry since early October nothing but green glue

All the discharge values are 0, except for s150, but I don't know where that is. The ones that flow south s333, s12, etc are all closed according to them. But, I only remember it raining two times in the last couple weeks around here, so I'm sure its evaporating.

The water is low but not too low, I would dare to say just right. I Ran from 40 Mile bend on Tamiami Trail up to the tower and on to the Rez land just below 75. Some of the trails pushing east and west are lightly patchy at worst and most if not all of the North south trails have plenty of H20. I ran the tight cypress trails as well as grass trails on the east side of the cypress line. The Trails just outside the cypress line were deep enough to need my trim tab. I have a 14' boat with an Iron block 383 stroker, not exactly a small boat and I never needed a drop of HP to get through good sliding.... Ill chirp you on 68 Its always good to put a face to a name. If you didn't know there are also a few Indian tour boats that run from 40 Mile Bend and they are some good folks they are on 72, too much chatter on 68... Frogs were thick again...

I was out this last Friday morning and it was great riding. I went from the 35 ramp (Ally) all the way to the swimming hole (tower) and hit no dry (I have a heavy boat). The average depth was a few inches. I did bump the rocks getting into the canal at the tower at an idle. There was pretty much no water behind the rocks at the swimming hole and the water wasn't moving. IMO it's great riding right now.
