    In an ironic twist, that's available for the Kindle and he has a web site.
    That's easy. Rains 90% of the time in England.

    I predict we will have little rain in July and August.

    No. I got pointed there when I made a statement about people just remembering the exceptions when they were right and the climatologists were wrong and that no one was all that accurate. Turns out I don't know everything. The last couple of winters many of the nature based forecasts predicted the cold in the eastern US while most of the rest of the world was experiencing above normal temps. That was pretty bizarre; there were a number of days when Alaska was warmer than DC.

    He does 6 months out, and predicts above or below normal/average temps and precip.

    Reached out to the guy about how his methods would work here in the USA. Answer was some would apply in northeast but south and west probably not. Waiting on Dr. H to lay out his methods for predicting the weather and his predictions for the up coming meets this year.

    Life might be getting in the way of me attending this meet. I will do my best to be physically there, if not in spirit anyway.

    I mentioned this before, but it was kind of buried in the context of another post...

    Does anyone have a spot on a boat? I would certainly pony up some gas money. I can't paddle due the the post surgery shoulder rehab and if I am going to be shore bound it will affect my thinking with regard to weather; I don't want to clamor around on muddy banks, slip and put my arm out on reflex. Hopefully the weather pattern will change and it will be nice and dry and that won't be a concern.

    I'm not sure anyone is bringing a boat. But there is a fishing pier if the shore is too slick for you. I bet there are accessible spots along the shore though. Both bass and crappie should be staging in deeper water adjacent to the shallow spawning areas. I'd toss a chatterbait jig for bass (with a crawfish or twin tail grub threaded on the hook). Crappie may be up close around brush. A small maribou jig a foot or two under a weighted float is deadly...move it very slowly. A bass will grab it too. You can buy a 'card,' of them at Bass pro for a couple of bucks. Or get some #4 thin wire hooks and some lip hooked minnows from a bait shop.

    While for selfish reasons I wish someone was, it's kind of cool that paddling has become so pervasive. It's definitely my preference; I just can't do it until late April.

    Might be a good spot to float a 'minner' if some of it's in the water.

    Hopefully life will let you know how much you need to make this trip. One more week, looks like the weather is going to be acceptable, at least in my world.

    I ain't never caught no fish in a cave.... be a good story to tell (intentional grammar).
    I was looking at the dam area and the caves and I would be interested in checking out that area, looks pretty interesting but also looks like there is some serious current up that way. Is there a put in closer to the dam?

    Unsure... I am now out on Sunday anyway, I have an appointment in Greensboro at 10.

    Talking to Gene... he may be doing a uwharrie float on sat morning. Thinks fishing may be better on the river than the lake at high water levels.

    Easy trip from the campsite... And he says he catches some VERY nice fish there in March.
