Couple things, been meaning to share

Got this from another forum. When fishing the delta, especially this time of year, allows you to find clearer water: http://cdec.water.ca.gov/jspplot/jspPlo ... ies=cdec01

Also, been playing around with the Navionics android app. Really great for finding points, holes, humps and other submerged structure in the delta and other bodies of water. There's an iOS version too if that's your thing. See: http://www.navionics.com/en/mobile-pc-app

Thanks for sharing, muymal! But I am not sure how to use the site. Higher the NTU, less visibility correct? And can you look at the various locations in delta?

Which version of thier app did you get?

One thing I just discovered was the following chart for SC lakes.

http://alert.valleywater.org/rgi.php

When you look at plot and you see a sudden jump, you probably get the murky water. Note, Anderson does not have the jump and it's water is still clear.

Loop - yes, please see the following as an example (from wikipedia, so it must be true): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Turbi ... ndards.jpg
There are multiple stations monitoring turbidity but not all of the delta stations do so. You just have to play around with it. In general, after a rain, the further south you go the less muddy it is. I like Little Mandeville because it has limited inlets so less chance to get muddy. Going to hit up Mildred island next week after the rain to see if my theory holds.

re: app, I got the 'USA' map.

Thanks for the link to the SC lake info. That's helpful.
You're welcome.

Ok, I figured out how to look other stations. Unfortunately, I don't see one near where I am interested, but Little Potato Slough shows NTU between 8 and 12.5 for the last two days. Based on the jpg image you linked, those numbers appear to be pretty good visibility.

And for the app, you got non-HD version ($10.36) or HD version ($34.99)?

Non-HD. The HD version is for tablets. Not sure if you need a 3G/4G connection for that. Now I'm curious.
Good stuff. I like the app especially for surf fishing. Gives you visibility on high tides.

Will have to play around with it.

However, I'm looking at the app and its 9.99$ for the US. Am I missing something since you're saying its 10.36$?
