(Coming sometime when we get the time: trip descriptions on these and other rivers.)

Spokane River at Spokane, WA (The light blue line is the flow, look to far right for latest)

Lochsa River at Lowell, ID (This gauge is NOT the one on the bridge at Three Rivers)

Wenatchee River at Peshastin, WA (Use for Main Wenatchee, for Tumwater use gauge at Plain)

Clark Fork River at St. Regis, MT (This gauge includes flow from St Regis River)

Salmon River at Whitebird, ID (Gauge for Lower Salmon and Riggins area)

St. Joe River at Calder, ID (This gauge is good for Skookum, Tumbledown will be a little less)

Palouse River at Hooper, Washington (This gauge is good for The Falls run and the Winona run)

Hangman/Latah Creek near Spokane (This gauge is near the takeout for the lower run, upper will be about half. Recommended flows: 1,600-1,800 minimum for a good run, 3000 plus for FUN! Be careful of taking rafts as sharp rocks abound and are next to impossible to see in the chocolate milk water.)

Hangman/Latah Creek near Tekoa (This gauge is near the Idaho stateline and will give a more true reading of the N. Kentuck launch levels).

Hangman/Latah Creek gauge comparison

Lochsa River Flow Chart: This chart compares flows from the USGS gauge to the popular "stick" gauge that is found at the bridge at 3 Rivers.

Moyie River Flow Chart: This chart compares flows from the USGS gauge to the popular "stick" gauge that is found at the dam. Simply look up the flow in CFS and compare it to the chart. 4-feet is approximately 2,500 cfs. while 6-feet is about 4,500 cfs.
