Gauge Description:

A new gauge was recently established on the Humptulips. This gauge is below the confluence of the east and west forks so actual flow on this reach will be lower. A good flow for a first run is around 2000 cfs on the gauge. The current lower limit is the level you can still bang your way down but you'll want more for an enjoyable trip. It's also easy to get a visual check on flows for this reach. Just look for a good boatable flow at the takeout bridge. This river can be boated at lower levels than other nearby runs and it's usually good throughout the winter rainy season. If the water is muddy and flooding go somewhere else.
