I got soaked on Weds. but did manage 1 rooster out of parking lot 3.  The dog found more birds early in the day.  As the rain kept coming she seemed to find less.
Is there a point when it is too wet and scent isn't coming off the birds???

 My favorite weather for wild pheasant hunting is pouring rain.  The birds hold much better and to answer your question no I don't think it affects the dogs scenting the birds.  A dry snow can affect the scenting but the rain is good.

Buckhunter,
Ducks and geese were flying for the first 1/2 hour of shooting time.  After that they were few and far between.  I was in pond out of parking lot 1.  While I was pheasant hunting I did not see a single duck fly.  That really surprised me.  The wind was blowing at about 10mph and it struck me as a good duck day.  I rarely heard shots on the refuge past 8:00 am.
