River Flow

=======================================

River flow is measured at gauges just upstream from Copeland Creek (for Segments 1, 2, and 3, Boulder Flat to Gravel Bin), and at Wright Creek (Segments 4 and 5, Gravel Bin to Cable Crossing). These gauges are good indicators of river conditions.

 

Copeland Creek Gauge

=======================================

The river height gauge is located just east of the Copeland Creek Bridge. Look at the water level height on the gauge and use the following table to compute streamflow into cubic feet per second (CFS).

Wright Creek Gauge


======================================

River flows are available daily at a gauge downstream from Steamboat (river mile 48.2) at Wright Creek. Call the North Umpqua Ranger Station at (541) 496-3532 or the Douglas County Water Resource Department at (541) 440-4255 weekdays, or check the following website www.co.douglas.or.us/dcland/stream.latest.htm (see North Umpqua River below Steamboat near Glide) to obtain information. Flows measured at Wright Creek include added flow from Steamboat Creek. These flows can be considerably greater in winter and spring.
