Gauge Description:

There is now a Washington DOE gauge and NOAA provides a feed to our website but it reports in stage height. Check levels from Six Mile Bridge and look for about 600 cfs. Historically there was a USGS gauge on this river (stn. 1205300 , 1931-1968, 93.5 sq. mi.) but it is no longer active.You can get an idea of flows by looking at nearby realtime gauges. The run is best after a good rain but holds it's water for a few days and can still be fun at lower flows. Look for the Elwha and SF Skokomish to be up between 1200 and 4500 cfs and the Dungeness to be between 250 and 900 cfs. These ranges are very approximate. At the lower limit of flows rapids are III+ and at higher flows expect pushy class IV+.
