Gauge Description:

Actual flows on Vance Creek are approximately 1/3 of the reading on the South Fork Skokomish gauge. Vance Creek (25 square miles) joins the South Fork (76 sqaure miles at the gauge) just downstream of the gauge station. For a nice level of about 600 cfs on Vance Creek you will thus want approximately 1800 cfs on the South Fork. At this level, mid-stream rocks upstream of the take-out bridge will be covered. A level of 350 cfs on Vance Creek (1050 cfs on the South Fork) is about the minimum but still fun. At this level some mid-stream rocks just upstream of the takeout bridge will not quite be covered.
