Gauge Description:

The Middle Fork Snoqualmie gage is a short distance downstream, but two major tributaries (Pratt and Taylor) come in between this run and the gauge such that actual flows on this reach are approximately 60% of the gauge reading. A reading of about 800 cfs on the Middle Fork gauge is the minimum for this section and levels slightly above this would be good for a first-time run. The high flow cutoff of 1800 is an estimate and has not beeen verified. For a visual inspection walk down to the river at the Middle Fork trailhead and check the rapid that can be seen on the upstream side of the foot bridge.
