BC and WA beta

Got a small crew headed North in search of water over the 4th. Primarily looking for IV+ to V creeking in BC/WA area, but wouldn't pass up the chance for some sick playboating either.
Been checking out ProfessorPaddle, so feel I have decent beta on WA flows, but struggling to get a sense of what flows are doing in BC. Looks like there aren't many guages up there...?

Anyone have contacts up there both for paddle partners and flow beta?

Thanks for the beta, SYOTR.
Lucas

There is plenty of information on BC and Washington in our River Gypsies' Guide to North America.

The River Gypsies' Flows Page has flow info for several of the streams in BC as well.

Things should be going up there right now, although there is a ton of snow still - so hot weather could blow things out pretty easily. Washington would be a better bet for the dates that you are looking at.

Have a great trip!

Thanks Leland, your book is one of my favorites and has been my primary reading for this trip.
