Here is a current PIC of muddy creek taken at 2pm. Got a long way to go for a run at this point.

That sounds like a plan to me. Might need to see if we can get an earlier visual though. I'd prefer not to drive to Madison County if nothing's up, but if Muddy's a go I'm all in. Tomorrow's my day.

Hanley, you have seen the pics.
How high does it have to be for it to be a good run?

Top of that knee wall or higher is when its really good.

For me half way up the knee wall from where it is in the last pic is what I would consider bare minimum for a run.

Ok
I'll scout it tomorrow morning around 8 am and let y'all know

I will take my sons and their friend down around 11 am
Anyone interested, please meet up with us.

Do the " old timers" on the muddy take out at Cain run or further down?

No need to scout, KY Mesonet says only 0.1 inches of rain in Madco today. You need to hit the Muddy soon after a significant rain, typically 6-24 hours after. I don't see anything on the radar to indicate more precipitation overnight. Go to the Elkhorn.

Old timers typically take out at Cain springs, the action slows down after that. Still go to Doylestown, it is a nice section too. If you park at Cain springs, stay off the grass. If too many cars are on the gravel portion, you can park on the side of the driveway about 50yds up the road. Just don't block the driveway. Not that there is going to be a big crowd, just thought I would mention it for newbies. Jeff K

Agree, Muddy is out for tomorrow. Meetup at Saufley's after dropping boats (or at AW acres if Saufley's is full) at 11:00 AM. It's an Elkhorn critical mass party tomorrow.

I'm looking to run the Elkhorn tomorrow. Glenn's was in its lowest passable stage yesterday and today, but if it's in play I would love to run that again or something similar.
