Gauge Description:

These are the low recommended flows (on SF Nooksack Gauge), since no one has run it with more water yet. For what we think was the first Descent, we had just under 1,100 CFS on the SF Gauge. This was about 2.6 on the stick gauge at the water diversion intake for the fish hatchery on Skookum Creek. This level was low but filled in which made it ideal for a First Descent.
