I've only seen it higher than that one other time. It was when I first moved to Raleigh. We had a hurricane that broke up into a tropical storm that dropped 8inches. I went to check out the river and the parking lot was flooded so at the time I didn't even know the parking lot was there.Ya think? I have never seen it that high.. You'd be better off fishing from the bridge (if at all). I am sure that current is moving.
