Gauge Description:

The flow graphed below is for the main fork below where the three forks join together.  Each fork should then contribute approximately 1/3 of the total flow.  Flow at the upper MF put in, 6 miles above Patrick's Creek might be 1/8 to 1/10 of the flow at Jedediah Park.  Flow at the take out, just above the SF confluence will be in the 2/3 range.  Actual flows will vary tremendously with different rainfall patterns.

NOAA Flow Prediction page estimates flow on the main fork for the next 4 days.
