Gauge Description:

SF Skokomish. As flows get higher you can expect the rapids to get a bit more pushy and some of the scouting and portage options may disappear (i.e. if it's your first time avoid high water). At lower flows, there are a couple drops that expose some pin hazards. Beware that this river can rise rapidly during heavy rain events. It's safest to catch it on the way back down. This gauge is operated for flood warning purposes and is typically online from the beginning of October to the end of May.
