May 10 on the Bitterroot River - flows are stepping up

The Bitterroot had clarity on May 7 and still on May 8 - also terrific caddis hatches! But now the weather has been much warmer and the flows are stepping up. See the charts below.
Bitterroot River on May 7 north of Angler's Roost
Darby gauge station is upriver from Angler's Roost - on May 7 flows at Darby were about 1900 CFS
Bell Crossing gauge station is downriver from Angler's Roost. On May 7 flows were about 3,000 CFS
Still snow in the mountains!!! Bitterroot is 89 % of normal.
Links to snowpack and USGS river flow gauge stations are in the right side bar.
