Update: 8/31/2017

The lower river improved overnight.  Looks like close to a foot of vis around 10:15 am.  I understand the Big Muddy is responsible for the color, a slide was suggested but it might just be from the heat, or both.  Looks like temps will be over 100F throughout the weekend and into next week so I wouldn’t expect the water to get much better.  Good time to take advantage of the cycle if you intend to fish.  The lower river should provide the best water early in the day and way upriver late in the day.  Was also informed the in-river work has remained on hold but will likely begin should natural turbidity remain high so next week is probable.  Here’s a pic taken about an hour ago.
