Time once again to review the past month's water flow in The Salmon River. Flows remained slightly above the long term median at the Yankee Fork gauge and slightly below the median at the Salmon City gauge. This pattern has carried through the summer.
At the Yankee Fork gauge, the August 1 flow was 730 cubic feet per second (cfs) with a gauge height (HT) of 2.77 feet. The river finished the month there yesterday with a flow of 472 cfs and a HT of 2.19 feet.
At the Salmon City gauge just about the Lemhi River confluence, August 1 river flow was 1260 cfs and a HT of 2.30 feet. By the end of August, the flow was 896 cfs and a HT of 1.93.
The cfs and HT graphs for both sites are below:
