River levels in much of the area have been rising as a result of recent rains. Good paddling or river level guage readings have been reported on: the Buffalo River, Lower Mountain Fork, The Glover River, the Kiamichi River, the Cossatot, the Ouachita.
The Upper Mountain Fork River and the Mulberry River are both at flood stage as much needed rain finally arrived in the southern Ozark hills.
Local weather forecasts predict temps in the mid-seventies for Wednesday and more rain forecast for this coming weekend. However, with the days ending so quickly now, it is tough for us to get away for a little time on the river during the week.
Here's hoping that the upcoming good weather catches you with your paddle wet and your camera dry!
