Gauge Description:

USGS gauge Wenatchee at Peshastin (also available through the NOAA hotline 206-526-8530). The run starts to become class V at flows up around 2000 cfs and cranks up another notch as flows climb above 4000 cfs. Although Bennett lists 1500 cfs as a lower limit, many enjoy this as a class IV pool- drop run during the late summer at flows down around 1000 cfs.
