I just would like to see how much drops up in Roscoe area between Hancock and liberty NY ..like with the passing front today..I see rain in forecasts but which apps/whatever are best?.. AccuWeather / Hudson valley but they don't disclose approximate rainfall amounts from what I seen. Tia

It helps knowing specific amounts of rainfall for the MTS..seems like it is top secret here..just saying..from how I interpret the conditions after every rain of significance

Fishing boards that begin to delve into politics usually run into trouble.  In my experience, politics and religion are not topics that make for healthy and supportive communication about fishing issues.

Alex, like you I am very interested in what even the lightest rain does to the system up there. Pre Irene, there were a couple more USGS streamflow gauges in some of the popular streams, but now the best thing I have found is to monitor the Beaverkill and relate it to the streams I frequent. I even made a chart that compares the B-kills actual flow to my interpretation of flow on the streams I fish. For example, if the B-kill is @ 340, I will make a note of the flows where I fish. After a couple years of this I can predict the conditions fairly accurately. My best advise would be to call the shop (s) and get some real time advise... I do that still! CJ

I agree Alex. Fishing threads should be left to fishing. Anything else and Barkeep's rules should apply.
Meaning, no politics and no religion.

The national weather service measures rainfall at designated places and they don't always correspond to fishing conditions. As others suggest stream gauges by the USGS are the best way to see current conditions. As for the future, I found this site earlier this year: http://water.weather...=bgm&gage=CKFN6

It gives a predicted water level based on the current weather forecast models. Had some wet weather in May and this site was pretty good at predicting what the flow would be 24-48 hours out.
