Gauge Description:

Because this run is higher up in the basin and susceptible to freezing level and relative snow melt the correlation is not perfect to the Goldbar gauge further downstream on the Skykomish. Check it out when the Skykomish at Goldbar Gauge is around 4000 cfs during spring snow melt or after a moderate fall rainstorm. 5000-6000 cfs is still a good level and you may find it runnable as low as 3000 cfs.
