Floated the SoHo Fri. Holy shit I've never seen so much didymo afloat! I recon 2300cfs really stirs it up! I wanted to rip streamers but every cast yielded rock snot! " class="fancybox" data-fancybox="topic">" title="" alt="" width="459" height="816" class="bbc_img" loading="lazy">

That ain't didymo in your first and 6th photo.

If you see the real thing suspended, I think this is part of the life cycle of the diatom.  After the cells die, the individual stalks hang in the substrate, lasting months.  If flows are right, they become dislodged and become a nuisance to anglers.

Think wet cotton which looks like snot in the water

It ain't the valuable macrophyte found in the SOHO, Fontinalis.  It looks like the "Elodea type" of veg found in the depositional areas of the tailwater.
