North Fork Smith – April 9, 2015
Zach Urness had been bugging me about getting back on the North Fork of the Smith. We had low flows but beautiful weather. The gauge above shows flows at Jed Smith, which are reported in CFS and Feet. This is a different gauge than the one Bearfoot Brad reports (which is at the actual confluence of the NF and MF Smiths) but the one above is the official USGS gauge. The gauge at the mouth of the NF is a foot gauge that is meant to correlate with the USGS gauge at Jed Smith. However, isolated weather events can throw this correlation off, in which case it’s best to use Brad’s gauge.
