On Sunday we had fall like conditions with heavy rain, high winds along with hail in the afternoon and the temperature was in the low 50's. With the heavy wide spread rain we got on Saturday combined with the heavy lake effect rain we got Sunday the river has significant runoff and was running off color with leaves in the lower end of the river. If your looking for the best water clarity with the least amount of leaves and runoff, the upper end of the river in Altmar would be your best choice.
