The above graph (shared by Robert Ferguson) shows the results of an 8-year study of rainfall, river fow, and Karenia Brevis blooms 1994 - 2002.  It was focused on the Caloosahatchie River and rainfall in Fort Myers, but this would indicate that a similar result should be expected in all rivers feeding into the Gulf of Mexico.
