Elk River Water Levels

How to use this page

Use this page’s information to find the current river level and our corresponding watercraft/paddlers permitted at that level. The below graph shows the current gauge height of the Elk River in our location in a 24-hour period. Below the USGS gauge height graph is a key for each of the float trips we offer – full, upper, or lower. Note the current gauge height and then find your trip key (full, upper, or lower), to see the watercraft & paddlers we permit at the current gauge height.

Steps to find watercraft permitted at the current river level

1. Find the current gauge height on the USGS gauge height graph below
2. Find your float trip’s gauge key (full, upper, or lower trips)
3. In the row corresponding to the current USGS gauge height, note which watercraft we permit at the current gauge height
4. If you have booked watercraft or have members that are not permitted at the current gauge height, please give us a call
