Any new FLOW sites?

Been out for a while...wondering if there are any new sites to peep flows and such...other than USGS? What are you using? Thanks!
Cheers!

Agreed, rivers flows. The old trusty AW website its helpful too.

There was a thread on here last year with a few other options.

I'm a RiverBrain fan too but just want to make a shout out for my fun side project Whitewater levels in the United States - Whitewater Map.

It's a map with river sections color coded based on water levels. Orange = too low, blue = too high, green = just right. Click on a section and it brings up the link to the AW page.

Honestly though, in Colorado, gauges chosen by RiverBrain are much more accurate than the gauges chosen by AW. Go back east though and AW is the best source I know of (though kayak411.com was trying).

Exactly.

The AW site causes more confusion than Bill Clinton explaining the definition of 'is'. It's data is old old old.

Though riverbrain's phone app is not good. Slow, and you need to click through things to get to your favorites every time.

I just run the regular Riverbrain website on my phone. In landscape mode it displays everything just fine. I have a couple custom lists that I use that contain a smaller set of runs (i.e. afterwork striking distance runs) so it's easier to scroll through. I put bookmark icons on my home screen so it's one tap to bring it up.
