Gauge Description:

USGS gauge, Army Corps of Engineers gauge (with reservoir information including inflow), the Corps is no longer providing their weekend outlook report for project operation. The Crops does however provide information on project operations that is integrated into NOAA's Green River forecast. You can also call the dam directly at 206-764-6975 or project office at 206-764-6702 if you want to find out what they'll be doing with flows over the next couple hours. Most consider flows of 1200-2000 cfs to be ideal and this is the recommended range for your first run. 1450 cfs is a great level for Paradise Ledge. At flows of 2000-4000 cfs this is a fun expert bigwater run. At flows up above 5000 cfs, things get very big and pushy. It has been run up above 10,000 cfs, but you'd better know the lines.
