I watch the flow rates all the time. Summer/fall for smallmouth on my local flows, and all winter/spring for the steels. I pay attention to the discharge/water levels and temperature mostly. I'm wondering if some of the other information I look past every day means anything to you guys.

Specific Conductance, Dissolved Oxygen, PH, and Turbidity.

These are a few graphs that I normally don't pay much attention to, but am wondering if I could in fact use this some how to my advantage. I believe I understand what Turbidity is trying to represent but it doesn't ever seem correct with what I see in the river.

What do you guys think?

Conductance and turbidity have a sort of inverse relationship - low, clear water usually = high conductance while high turbidity and high water = low conductance. If the DO goes really low, that's hypoxia (caused by algae rotting) and trouble with fish kills.
