River Conditions

When planning any river trip it is critical to monitor river flows leading up to your launch day. Optimal flows are between 100 cfs and 200 cfs on the Devils.

The Devils is a flashy system, meaning water levels can rise very quickly. Even a small rain can cause moderate flood conditions and inundation of island areas. For your safety, it is critical to keep an eye on flow levels and weather forecasts.
