Northwest storms

Smith R at Crescent City, CA hit a peak of almost 50,000 cfs on the 17th!

Illinois peaked at 17 and the Rogue 33. How does this compare, historically?

The Rogue hit 90,000 last year, I am pretty sure the Illy has been over 50,000 before. Some guides ran the Wild and Scenic section of the Rogue in 4.5 hours while it was at 90,000 earlier this year. (34 miles)

The record for the Rogue is 290,000 cfs on December 23, 1964 on the Agness gauge.

Nevertheless, by any standards big water.

Whoa, thanks for the intel, puts things in perspective. I remember seeing a marker high up on the cliff above the Klamath R road which showed a high water mark.

I guess u don't need a permit for the Rogue if you'r doing it in one day?!

228,000cfs is the current max historical flow for the smith in contrast to last weeks 50,000cfs. It is an incredible river system if you ever have the chance to make it out and run some of the forks. 10ft on the pipe is a good first-time flow for the North Fork Smith. Barfoot Brad in Gasquet provides an exceptional shuttle service. Find him on facebook where he post daily flow information from the pipe gauge on the North Fork.

Have they gotten rid of all of the poison oak since the last time I was there?

The Poison Oak on the Rogue at least, is still VERY abundant.
