Farris Creek Bridge
« on: March 05, 2016, 08:59:48 PM »
All, I have a couple of relatively simple questions to which I have found varying answers during my search.  How long does it take for the water rise to reach Farris Creek Bridge after generation start?  I've seen anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours. 

Also, about how long does it take for water to fall out after generation stop?

Hopefully David Darnell will see this as he should know.

give it 3 hours for Farris, around 9 miles, water runs 3 mph or so

dropping out, that has to do with how much if any water is downstream of Farris

Thanks!  We tried it this past Sunday and those times fit with what we experienced.  Water seemed to be dropping out at ~4 hours after generation stop and fell even more while we were fishing.  First time I'd fished that area and we plan on trying it again later this Spring.
