Gauge Description:

GAUGE: Depending on the freezing level (the run is around 1000' elevation), the Tye runs approximately 15-20% of the Skykomish at Goldbar. Bennett lists recommended levels of 600-1500 cfs which would put the minimum flows at 3000-4000 cfs on the Goldbar gauge and maximum flows at 7500 to 10,000 cfs. Expect the flow to be at the higher end of the range during spring snowmelt and the lower end of the range during winter rains. Expect the rapids to change from technical boulder chutes to rides through more powerful hydraulics as the flow increases.

Reports give the public a chance to report on river conditions throughout the country as well as log the history of a river.
