What AlexB said, particularly since that's his line of expertise. It's the small particulate thing that's the worst part of it and it's probably a pretty nasty soup blowing in the wind right now

Professionally speaking I'm on the other end of it, meaning I deal with respiratory issues in ICUs in a children's hospital so I should know better but if I get the chance to fish this weekend I'm out there smoke or no smoke

HMB looked nasty one of the days I was out but the air out on the water I seemed fine. Im dealing with major lung issues myself and 79% of why I'm out there these days is for the workout

But if I had to pick the smartest advice especially for the long term it'd be AlexB's

Oxygenation isn't the problem, it's those tiny little particles that get down in the distal parts of your lungs and stick there, make garden variety respiratory trouble or turn into cancer down the road

This appears to be an authoritative air quality map and forecast tool: https://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=airnow.local_city&cityid=317

You can enter a zip code to get a forecast for the next few days, but it looks like their server is suffering from heavy load right now (no surprise).

Yeah, thatís the best air quality resource I know of, but it has its limitations. Localized wind patterns and microclimates make it tough to accurately predict/report local air quality.
