Virgin River Water Levels

This is a post for the locals. Have you ever gotten down to the river only to be disappointed finding it is too high to skim. Problem solved.

How to read the water level graph.
The graph reports the amount of discharge in cubic feet per second. The triangles on the graph are the Medians (a kind of average). The most recent instantaneous value can be found right above the graph. If you are down to the river often, the graph can be a valuable tool to compare the height of the river now with the height of the river another day that you were there. Then you will know if it will be higher or lower than the last time you were there. If you don't go to the river often, a few values may be helpful. If the value of discharge is under 80 cubic feet per second, you'll probably find some good skimming. If the value is under 50 the river will probably be very good. If the value is over 80, it doesn't mean you won't be able to skim, you just may have to look a little harder to find a good spot.

See the graph and check the Virgin River water level.
