@ ootek34 -- we've changed our flyin to 27 and 28 so really need to take smaller boats now. each year is different that's for sure. i use the Pike Creek Snotel site to determine the amount of snow in the hills:
Snow Station Information - PIKE CREEK SNOTEL
the USGS gauge in West Glacier is too far away from Schafer to get any idea of water levels up that high
Looks like the snow is gone up there so small boats and light gear this season.
Last year was an anomoly with the amount of snow left in July...it doesn't happen very often that's for sure. I was on the MFSalmon last July 1 and it was awsome -- never seen that much water in July.
