When looking at the USGS streamflow data, which of these do you tend to use in making decisions? Depending on chart scale, they can give two completely different impressions.

Sometimes I think we just tend to over analyze. We almost opted not to float the Big Hole yesterday as my fishing buddy looked at the uptick on the graph. Neither of us particularly like rising water, but the 200 cfs increase on the gage chart had him thinking the river was coming up fast. Over the years, I really have not paid much attention to Montana river flow data because we were here on vacation and, well, we're here... fish the cards you're dealt. No doubt now that we live here, I'll pay a bit more attention to streamflow data, but not likely to the extent some seem too. For instance, I listen to some of the locals here talk about it such that I wonder if they ever get out at all... got to be just this or just that. Like I told my buddy yesterday; fuck it, it may not be optimum, but it's a gorgeous day and we're fishing.
