SRF has monitored flow a couple of times so far this season. After such a dry winter, it is a relief to have a couple of spring rain events. There was about two inches of rain the weekend before the latest monitoring visit on June 8 & 9. Air temperatures ranged from the 60s to 80s (°F) depending on site and time of day. The water temperature ranged from 50s to low 60s (°F) also depending on site and time of day. Streamflow ranged from 410 gpm at Miller Creek to 3,300 at RC-4 in the lower watershed, which seems to be similar to this time of year in 2020. The flow dropped about 20% from the previous monitoring visit. There are fish swimming in the pools. The dissolved oxygen averaged almost 11 ppm.
