Buffalo National River levels at historic lows

“Real-time measurements of water movement taken Wednesday showed a volume of 30 cubic feet per second at the Arkansas 65 bridge. David Mott of the National Park Service said the minimum flow ever recorded for that date was 30 cubic feet per second.” [from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Northwest Edition]

Damn. The Buffalo is one of the best places in Arkansas (and maybe the world) to float, hike, camp, and/or fish for smallmouth bass. If we don’t get some rain soon and in significant quantity, the floating and fishing part of that is really going to suck this Spring and Summer. We are in a serious drought in Arkansas right now.
