Gauge Description:

Rainy season or peak snowmelt. Best May through June.

Have a look at Canyon Creek when the N.F. Nooksack is between 1200-2000 CFS.

To get a visual of the creek at the take out, turn left off highway 542 into Glacier Springs. There is a large sign on the left side that says GLACIER SPRINGS (you cant miss it). Take the next right onto Miller, as soon as you enter Glacier Springs, then take a left on Canyon View Dr. Go up the hill about a � mile. On the right you will see a ravine which is actually a dyke diverting canyon creek into the Nooksack. There is a trail here that you can walk out onto the dyke and get a peek at the river.

If it looks about 300 to 500 CFS it is probably good to go. Keep in mind that the character of the river takes a dramatic change a mile up stream.

Reports give the public a chance to report on river conditions throughout the country as well as log the history of a river.
