How do these Rivers compare in terms of blowout levels, and recovery?

And that’s no joke. That’s knowledge that requires hundreds of hours of driving to and from, hundreds more hours of fishing here and there, and hundreds more hours reading the weather and watching the graphs. I read the weather and watch the graphs for the river reaction every day whether I have imminent fishing plans or not (I always have imminent fishing plans tho lol) The way these rivers react to the rain is highly dependent on a handful of variables that nobody is going to hand you here. I will tell you most of the rivers out there are total yo-yos, the “Quest” especially.


You could cheat and hire a guide who will definitely sell out and hand you lots of this knowledge for just a handful of greenbacks in return. FYI make sure it’s someone decent, not one of the plethora of stupid [Bleeeeep!] that call themselves fishing guides, they’re in the same boat as you.

Here ya go:

https://waterdata.usgs.gov/wa/nwis/current?type=flow

Right now all the rivers YOU asked about....should be pretty close to "low water" for this time of the year....

write these numbers down, somewhere...….then when you want to go fishing check the flow...…..if up 2000 or more, in general, stay home, wait until the water starts to drop.....now the only to find the "good level"....YOU GOT TO FIND THAT OUT FOR YOURSELF...….find a good level that works for you...

Good luck....

Nothing but a bunch of mean old has-beens on this board.

Get off my river, you damn kids!!!! rofl

Back in my day, I had to have my sell out guide row me UP the river. 5 miles. In the snow. Uphill.

We didn't have no internets, googles, BookFaces, and InstantGram to help us fish.

Damn snowflake kids. Probably wants a fishing report with photos too.

I don't think there are short cuts when figuring out these three systems. Take the Humptulips for instance, in the fall a normal rain system can push in mega leaves and muddy the water for days, but double the rain in December might barely bump the river and keep in green and fishable if the snow level is low enough. The next week, the same amount of rain might punch it, if it's warm and the snow level climbs.

The sentiment on previous posts shares the reality... you ain't gonna find the good days unless you just GO! If you stare at the online river graphs and wait for the best day, you're gonna be waiting a while. And if you cherry pick the best flows you're gonna have more company than you can handle and miss out on some great fishing in marginal conditions.
