Key


Name: Name of the river/creek/run. Linked to a detailed description.

Class: International classification/rating for the creek at optimal levels. At higher levels, the creek may be more difficult than this rating indicates!

Size: approximate stream/watershed size. Refer to the chart below for details:
SizeWidth (ft)Watershed (sq mi)Rain Rate (in/hr)Window
XS< 20< 11.53-6 hrs
VS20-301-41.06-12 hrs
S30-404-100.751 day
M40-7510-250.51-2 days
L> 75> 250.22-5 days
H> 150> 750.15+ days

Note: Window is the typical time to reach "too low" levels without further precipitation.

Level: current stream level and trend. Refer to the chart below for details:
Color/CodeLevelDescription
 Too LowStream is too low for fun paddling.
 LowStream is low but paddlable. May have to drag/portage in places.
 OptimalStream is perfect for paddling. The ratings listed are for this range.
 HighStream is high and difficulty is increased. Ratings typically are tougher than what is listed.
 High NFStream is high and difficulty is increased. Ratings typically are tougher than what is listed. No flood level listed for river
 FloodStream is flooded and potentially very dangerous! Many more hazards are present in this range and ratings typically are much tougher than what is listed.
Note: Trend arrows indicate whether the creek is falling or rising.

Ref. Gauge: The on-line gauge that the level is based on, linked to the page for the actual gauge. The line below starts with the current level/flow reading for the gauge and then the Too Low, Optimal, and High/Flood divisions for the described creek. (E.g.: "3.63 [2.3, 3.5, 6.3]" would mean that the gauge is currently at 3.63 feet and that the creek is too low below 2.3, low between 2.3 and 3.5, optimal between 3.5 and 6.3, and high/flood over 6.3, so the creek is currently at the low end of optimal level.) The value for the current level is also linked to a history of recent levels and notes about the interpretation of the levels.

Time: The time the gauge updated and the how long ago that was. Remember that for streams of the XS, VS, and S variety, a reading that is a few hours old may not reflect the current stream flow. The color of the text also indicates how old the reading is: green = < 1.5 hrs ; blue = 1.5 - 3.0 hrs ; yellow = 3.0 - 10.0 hrs ; red = > 10 hrs.
