Gauge Description:

Something around 800 cfs is about right although you can run this section at relatively low water. Check the USGS Queets gauge (Matheny is a Queets trib) and look for flows of at least 2000 cfs (10,000 is better). At the put-in bridge, check the big rock on upstream river left and look for water about halfway up the rock for a good moderate level. This section can be run higher or lower.
