USGS Current Conditions for USGS 13317000 SALMON RIVER AT WHITE BIRD ID

Is the gage no longer trustworthy?

Just got off the Main on Saturday. When we put on, gage on the ramp was at .8 which was approximately 3770 cfs. The river was a great run for family, my 10 year old rode several of the smaller rapids on a paddle board. Big Mallard, Alder, Vinegar still presented challenges that you need to pay attention to..

We have a comprehensive flow report on our website that one of our employees, Ron, has put together.

You'll find the "River Flows" link at the bottom of our homepage.

And if you have any suggestions, Ron would love to hear them!

Late season low flows on the main are horrible. Way too rocky and the yellow jackets will sting you to death. Don't go. Oh and it's the worst possible time for Noro viruses. Save yourselves and head to Colorado for a safe fun float. 😉
