June 25, 2016:
Added , and icons to the Comments section of the flow reports.  Clicking on a given icon takes you to the same flow site on the corresponding Realtime, Daily or Fantasy Flows report.  Icons that stand out were selected to get everyone's attention, but after a while the presentation will probably be toned down.

May 25, 2016:
Added a Dreamflows calendar-style page showing release schedules for:
Mokelumne - Below Electra Powerhouse

May 18, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
South Silver - Above Ice House Reservoir
Note: this is a new gauge, and (until they can fully calibrate the gauge) the data may not be accurate at higher flows.

April 20, 2016:
Stopped reporting the estimated flow site Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake Calc.
Since there's now just the one site, renamed the physical gauge site from
Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake Gage
to just
Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake

April 14, 2016:
Added Dreamflows calendar-style pages showing release schedules for:
North Fork Mokelumne - Devil's Nose Run
North Fork Mokelumne - Tiger Creek Run

March 22, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Colorado site:
San Miguel - Near Placerville

March 21, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new New Mexico site:
Embudo Creek - Near Dixon

March 20, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon site:
Fall Creek - Above North Fork

Stopped reporting estimated river flow for the existing Oregon site:
Mi. Santiam - Above Green Peter Lake
and started reporting the following site (which reports actual gauge height) in its place:
Mi. Santiam - Near Cascadia

March 14, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington site:
Kettle - Near Laurier

March 5, 2016:
Added Dreamflows calendar-style pages showing release schedules for:
South Fork Silver Creek - Below Ice House Dam
South Fork American - Slab Creek

March 1, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Montana site:
West Rosebud Cr - At Emerald Lake CG
This flow site replaces the old West Rosebud Cr - Near Roscoe site.

February 3, 2016:
Created a new California site:
Trinity - Inflow Trinity Lake
to replace the old California site
Trinity - Inflow Clair Engle Lake
Firstly, somewhere along the line, the name of the lake changed from 'Clair Engle Lake' back to 'Trinity Lake', so the change brings the site name up to date.  Secondly, Dreamflows was previously reporting incorrect inflow information, but has now corrected that error.  By switching to a new flow site, all the old/bad flow information has effectively been discarded, so the new graphs and historical information will be correct and up-to-date.

January 31, 2016:
Started reporting paddle-out information for the following new California site:
Eel - Below Van Arsdale Dam

January 21, 2016:
Started reporting paddle-out information for the following new California site:
American - Folsom Elev NF Paddle Out

January 20, 2016:
Renamed the pre-existing California site from:
American - Folsom Lake Elevation
to
American - Folsom Elev SF Paddle Out
since the main purpose is to estimate the current South Fork (Gorge run) paddle out.  This is also in anticipation of providing a North Fork (Confluence run) paddle out soon.

January 10, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Wyoming site:
Snake - Near Alpine

January 9, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Wyoming site:
Gros Ventre - At Kelly

January 7, 2016:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Idaho site:
Lolo Creek - Near Greer

November 4, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
Sespe Creek - Near Wheeler Springs

October 31, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
Rubicon - Below Rubicon Dam
The flow data is courtesy of SMUD, provided as part of the UARP relicensing effort.

October 29, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Idaho site:
E. Fk So. Salmon - Above Sugar Creek

October 28, 2015:
Renamed the pre-existing California site So. Silver Cr - Below Ice House Res to
So. Silver Creek - Below Ice House Reservoir
and started reporting realtime flow for it.  The flow data is courtesy of SMUD, provided as part of the UARP relicensing effort.

October 24, 2015:
Stopped reporting flows for the old Washington site:
Big Quilcene - Near Mouth
and started reporting the following new Washington site instead:
Big Quilcene - Below Big Quilcene Dam
It's all very confusing, but the short version seems to be that the Big Quilcene - Near Mouth gauge, which was reported by NOAA, might have been inaccurate either in flow value, or reported gauge location, or both. On the other hand, the new Big Quilcene - Below Big Quilcene Dam gauge is a USGS gauge and USGS confirm that its location and flow values are both correct.

October 5, 2015:
Changed the name of the following existing California site from
So. Stanislaus - Below Filladelfia Div Dam
to
So. Stanislaus - Below Philadelphia Div
based on information provided by Tom Stapleton of PG&E.  Thank you, Tom, for the correction.

September 22, 2015:
Started reporting gauge-derived flow information for the following new California sites:
No. Kern - Above Fairview Dam
No. Kern - Below Fairview Dam
Flow and gauge location information provided courtesy of Southern California Edison.

August 1, 2015:
Started reporting gauge-derived flow information for the following pre-existing Oregon site:
W. Fk Hood - Above East Fork
Previously, this flow site was reported as an estimate, but NOAA has installed a real gauge, so actual flows are now being reported.

July 31, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon site:
Mi. Santiam - Below Green Peter Dam

July 26, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington site:
Duckabush - Near Brinnon

July 25, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Utah site:
Green - At Mineral Bottom

July 23, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California sites:
Los Angeles - Below Sepulveda Dam
Los Angeles - Above Rio Hondo
Dreamflows started reporting these two sites at the request of Anthea Raymond.

July 20, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Utah site:
San Rafael - Near Green River

July 18, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington site:
Klickitat - Below Summit Creek
This site is a physical USGS gauge, and replaces the old Klickitat - Near Glenwood estimated flow site.  Note that the locations of the two sites differ - the new Klickitat - Below Summit Creek physical gauge is 16 miles downstream of the old Klickitat - Near Glenwood virtual gauge.

July 14, 2015:
Switched the source of the data for the following pre-existing California site:
So. American - Below Slab Creek Dam
As part of relicensing, SMUD has made realtime flow available to us via CDEC (thank you both SMUD and CDEC).  This is a physical gauge, measuring actual flow. As a result, Dreamflows is now reporting accurate flow below Slab Creek dam.  Previously, Dreamflows reported a computation of spill to the river based on Slab Creek reservoir elevation, plus an estimate of fish flow releases.  While helpful, this didn't take actual release to the river via the dam into account (because that information wasn't available to us).  This problem goes away now we have a real gauge below the dam.

June 30, 2015:
Switched the source of the data for the following pre-existing Oregon site:
No. Rogue - Above North Fork Res
Previously, Dreamflows got the data from a NOAA gauge, however that station claimed to be located above North Fork Res when it's in fact below North Fork Res.  This means that Above North Fork Res data has been incorrect for the last couple years.  Dreamflows historical data for this gauge has been deleted accordingly.  Dreamflows has switched to reporting a USGS gauge instead (USGS kindly double-checked that the location and data for their gauge are both correct).  On the plus side - Above North Fork Res data is now being reported correctly.

June 29, 2015:
Started reporting gauge-derived flow information for the following pre-existing Washington site:
Icicle Creek - Above Snow Creek
Previously, Icicle Creek was reported as an estimate, but USGS has installed a real gauge, so actual flows are now being reported.

June 25, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following pre-existing Washington site:
Big Quilcene - Near Mouth
since NOAA has started reporting flow for it (previously the Washington Dept. of Ecology operated this site, but then discontinued it).

June 24, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following pre-existing Washington site:
Chelan - Below Lake Chelan
since USGS is once again reporting flow for it.

May 17, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
Kern - Below Kern Canyon PH Dam
Dreamflows started reporting this site at the request of Brett Duxbury.

May 16, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
Grindstone Creek - Near Grindstone Rancheria

May 15, 2015:
Stopped reporting flows for the following California site (since a better flow site - Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake Gage - is now available):
Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake Calc

May 12, 2015:
On the reach cross-listing pages, for example for the No. American - Inflow Lake Clementine, changed the flow link so you're taken to the 'panel' graph page instead of to the 'realtime' graph.

The rationale is that folks visiting the xlist page will likely be doing some kind of research, and having all the available graphs display together is more convenient. However, the flow pages still link to the 'realtime' graph as they used to; the rationale is that folks visiting the flows pages most likely just want the current flow.

May 9, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
So. Kings - Above Boyden Cave
This is a realtime (physical) gauge, which replaces the old Dreamflows estimated/virtual 'So. Kings - Below Cedar Grove' flow site.

May 3, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
Piru Creek - Above Frenchmans Flat

May 2, 2015:
Started reporting flow information (not just gauge height) for the following California site:
Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake Gage
The rating table (used to compute flow from gauge height) was supplied by Hetch Hetchy Water and Power.

April 28, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake Gage
This is an actual gauge, however at this time it measures only gauge height.  On the other hand, the Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake Calc gauge reports flow instead of gauge height, but that's the computed noon-to-noon daily average, something quite different.  Bottom line: thought required when comparing the two.

February 16, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Utah site:
Colorado - At Potash

February 9, 2015:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California sites:
Stony Creek - Above Stony Creek Res
Stony Creek - Above Black Butte Lake
Stopped reporting 'Stony Creek - Inflow Black Butte Res' since the above two gauges make it obsolete.

November 25, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
So. Kings - Above Roaring River

November 4, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Colorado site:
Animas - At Silverton

August 4, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Utah site:
Green - Near Greendale

July 31, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon sites:
Beaver Creek - At Troutdale
Oak Grove Clackamas - At Ripplebrook Campground

Jul 28, 2014:
Started reporting flow information once more for the following Washington site:
Squire Creek - At Squire Creek Park

Jul 7, 2014:
Switched from reporting realtime flow to reporting daily average flow for the following California site:
Kaweah - Inflow Terminus Res
The reason for the switch is that the realtime plot jumps around so much that it has dubious value.  Even the daily plot isn't that great, however - when compared to the Three Rivers gauge - it should help to show when the South Fork Kaweah is in.

Jun 22, 2014:
Started reporting realtime reservoir elevation for the following California site:
Tuolumne - New Don Pedro Elevation
Started reporting elevation as the result of a bulletin-board posting by 'valentinescott'.

May 29, 2014:
Added the ability to view all four available graphs (day, month, year and average) for a given Dreamflows gauge site simultaneously on a composite 'panel'.
An example graph panel page is:
Smith - At Jedediah Smith
Note the '?' help link on the panel page.
For a full list of available graph panel pages, click the 'Graphs' link at the bottom of just about any Dreamflows page.
Dreamflows started reporting this new feature at the suggestion of Misty Newell.

May 24, 2014:
Stopped reporting flows for the following California site (since data is no longer available):
Big Sur - Andrew Molera State Park

April 29, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following California site:
Tuolumne - At Wards Ferry

Apr 28, 2014:
Started creating "Average" graphs for gauges on select free-flowing rivers in California, for example:
Smith - At Jedediah Smith
No. American - Inflow Lake Clementine
No. Kern - At Kernville
These new graphs show weighted average flows based on the available data in the Dreamflows database.  They show what kinds of flow to expect at varying times of the year.  The intended purpose is to help with planning trips.

Click on the "Graphs" link at the bottom of a Dreamflows page to identify the sites which currently support "Average" graphs.  Will add other "Average" graphs as time and opportunity permits.

Dreamflows started reporting this new feature as a result of requests and suggestions from Darin McQuoid and Daniel Brasuell.

March 20, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following California site:
Marble Fk Kaweah - Near Lodgepole

February 25, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following Nevada site:
Bruneau - At Rowland

February 21, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following Idaho site:
E. Fk Owyhee - At Crutcher Crossing

Started reporting reliable hourly flow information, courtesy of PG&E, for the following California sites:
Pit - Above Pit 1 Powerhouse
Stanislaus - At Camp Nine
Mokelumne - Below Electra Powerhouse (computed estimated flow)
Previously, data for these sites was available spottily, or not at all.
Thank you, PG&E, for making this data available.

January 6, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following New Mexico sites:
Rio Chama - Above Abiquiu Reservoir
Rio Chama - Near La Puente

January 4, 2014:
Stopped reporting flows for the following Washington site (since data is no longer available):
Chelan - Below Lake Chelan

January 2, 2014:
Added a "Forgotten Your Username?" option to the Dreamflows login page.

January 1, 2014:
Started reporting flow information for the following new estimated California site:
No. Tuolumne - At Riverside Campground
Happy New Year!

December 29, 2013:
On the flow reports, the old region
Oregon Rivers
was getting unwieldy, so split it into three new ones:
Oregon Coastal Rivers
Oregon Central Rivers
Oregon Eastern Rivers
Also re-ordered sites in the Eastern Rivers section to follow a consistent clockwise-rotation-around-the-state convention.

December 26, 2013:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington site:
No. Stillaguamish - Near Arlington

October 8, 2013:
Stopped reporting flows for the following Washington sites (they have been discontinued due to budget cuts):
Squire Creek - At Squire Creek Park
Jim Creek - At Whites Road
Rock Creek - At Stevenson

October 7, 2013:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington site:
Chelan - Below Lake Chelan

October 6, 2013:
Added a 'Favorites' zone to the flow report pages, for example on the Realtime report.
This option displays the flow sites that you've selected using the Favorites page.
This allows you to create your own, personal, list of 'favorite' flow sites.
You need a Dreamflows account and be logged in to set up your favorites list (so that Dreamflows can associate the list with you).
Similarly, you'll be prompted to login if you visit using a new browser (so that Dreamflows can associate your list with the browser).
However, that's for setup - normally, you don't need to be logged in to access the personal flow report and check your favorite flows.

September 22, 2013:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon site:
Molalla - Near Canby
Dreamflows started reporting this site at the request of Jeremy Lynn.

September 18, 2013:
Added a 'Map' format to the flow report pages (previously, only 'Standard' and 'Compact' formats were available).
Sorry, but only conventional desktops are supported at this time; operation with touch-screen devices is still problematic.
Try out the Map version of the Realtime report here.
Detailed help is available by clicking on the symbol to the right of the main "Go" button, or clicking here.
The 'Map' feature gives you the ability to:
  • Visualize where gauges are on the map.
  • Display basic flow information, and get access to common auxilliary information.
  • Locate a specific flow site, or group of sites, by name.
  • Specify a city (or other location) and locate flow sites within X miles of that location.
  • Select only those sites that are at good/optimum flow.
  • Select only those sites that are within a specific region.
  • Select sites by a combination of criteria to narrow the search even further.
  • August 23, 2013:
    Stopped reporting flows for the California site Tule - Inflow Lake Success since the flows reported by
    Tule - Near Springville
    (a gauge already reported by Dreamflows) are more relevant.

    August 13, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    Mi. Stanislaus - Near Kennedy Meadow

    August 8, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Colorado site:
    No. Saint Vrain Cr - Above Buttonrock Res

    August 1, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington sites:
    Elwha - At McDonald Bridge
    Suiattle - Near Darrington
    In addition, Dreamflows is no longer reporting the Elwha - Above Lake Mills gauge; it's been superceded by the Elwha - At McDonald Bridge gauge mentioned above.

    July 29, 2013:
    Started reporting gauge information for the following pre-existing Oregon site:
    No. Rogue - Above North Fork Res
    Previously, Dreamflows estimated river flow for this site.  Now, it's an actual NOAA/NWS gauge.

    July 28, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon site:
    Rogue - Near McLeod

    July 24, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Idaho site:
    Boundary Creek - Near Porthill

    July 22, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Nevada site:
    Jarbidge - Below Jarbidge

    July 20, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon sites:
    Imnaha - At Imnaha
    Sandy - Near Marmot

    July 17, 2013:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following Washington sites (since data is no longer available):
    Joseph Creek - Near Mouth
    Panther Creek - Near Carson

    July 15, 2013:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    Silver Creek - Below Camino Dam

    June 16, 2013:
    Added a List of Composite Maps section to the Cross-Listing page of each state that features them (currently CA, ID and NM).
    For example, this is the current list of composite maps for California.

    June 6, 2013:
    Added a Flow Monitoring zone to the realtime flow reports.  The initial implementation supports automated flow compliance monitoring for SYRCL (the South Yuba River Citizens League) as part of the Yuba-Bear relicensing effort.  Flow compliance monitoring will hopefully be extended in the future to support other relicensing efforts.  The flow monitoring page is bare-bones right now, but will be extended later as other drainages and gauges become available:
    FERC Flow Compliance Monitoring

    February 25, 2013:
    Started reporting water temperature information for the following new California site:
    So. American - Below Weber Creek
    Note: This gauge doesn't report river flow (only water temperature).
    Dreamflows started reporting this data based on information provided by Pete Arpin, and at the suggestion of both Pete Arpin and Bob Center.

    February 20, 2013:
    Update: I previously stated that users may keep their existing BBS Website entries.  I'm generally okay with leaving entries that are commercial in nature, if they are somehow related to recreational river use.  However, I've started removing existing entries that seem unrelated, e.g. selling vitamins, furniture or real estate (even if it is on a river or lake).

    February 19, 2013:
    In the Bulletin Board profile, the optional Website field was supported at one time, and users may keep their existing entries (if they have one set).  However, entries can no longer be changed.  This is to reduce abuse from those who want to use Dreamflows as a marketing tool.  If you have a legitimate river-related website that would provide value to visitors, and which you'd like set in your profile, contact chris@dreamflows.com.

    January 13, 2013:
    Added rating tables for the following flow sites reported by Dreamflows:
    Trinity - Below Lewiston Dam
    Trinity - At Douglas City
    McCloud - At Shasta Lake

    Big Sulphur Cr - Near Cloverdale
    Big Sur - Andrew Molera State Park
    Big Sur - Near Big Sur
    West Walker - At Walker
    E. Fk Carson - Near Gardnerville

    December 30, 2012:
    Updated all the rating tables currently reported by Dreamflows with the latest-available values (which may still be out of date, especially if the gauge is no longer operational).

    December 22, 2012:
    Started reporting estimated flows for the following Washington site:
    Deer Creek - Near Oso
    Previously, Dreamflows reported actual Washingston State Department of Ecology gauge information for this site, however the gauge was discontinued.
    Dreamflows started reporting this estimate at the request of Ben Hawthorne.

    December 21, 2012:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Utah sites:
    Green - At Ouray
    Green - At Green River
    Dirty Devil - Near Hanksville
    [Previously, Green - At Green River was reported on the Easywater page, but not the Utah flow page.]

    December 19, 2012:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new New Mexico site:
    Rio Grande - Near Cerro

    December 17, 2012:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Arizona site:

    Silver Fk American - Above SF American

    November 27, 2012:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California Easywater sites:
    San Joaquin - At Highway 41
    San Joaquin - Below Skaggs Bridge

    August 6, 2012:
    Started reporting realtime reservoir elevation for the following new California site:
    So. American - Slab Creek Dam Elevation
    Previously, reservoir elevation was reported along with the estimated flow for So. American - Below Slab Creek Dam, however because of this a graph of reservoir elevation wasn't available.  Now it is.  Dreamflows started reporting this information at the request of Paul Redd.  He will use reservoir elevation to help determine when Slab Creek Res is good for flat-water paddling.

    June 24, 2012:
    Added a Dreamflows calendar-style page showing the flow schedule for Clear Creek - Below Whiskeytown Lake.

    June 19, 2012:
    Started reporting scheduled flow information on the Fantasy Flows page for Clear Creek - Below Whiskeytown Lake.  Inspiration for reporting this information came from a bulletin board post by Ron Rogers.

    June 18, 2012:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Colorado site: 
    Roaring Fork - At Glenwood Springs
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge at the request of Tim Hood.

    June 7, 2012:
    Started reporting scheduled flow information on the Fantasy Flows page for Mi. American - Above Tunnel Chute

    May 13, 2012:
    Added a Dreamflows calendar-style page showing the flow schedule for the Middle Fork American River Below Ralston Dam (Oxbow).

    April 24, 2012:
    Started reporting realtime flow information for the following new California site: 
    San Joaquin - Below Stevenson Creek
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge as a result of information provided by Paul Martzen.

    March 7, 2012:
    Several folks reported that they were getting '910' error messages when they clicked on a section link (under the Section Index header) on the new flows report page.  Thanks to all of you - amongst other things, reports from several different visitors makes it clear there's a pervasive problem, not some kind of local fluke or environment issue.  Anyway, Tracy Soule provided enough information that I was able to reproduce, and create a workaround.  Both Firefox and IE manifested the problem, whereas Chrome, Safari and Opera did not.  Go Chrome, Safari and Opera.  The problem should be fixed now.

    March 2, 2012:
    Dreamflows is now providing unrestricted access to Fantasy Flows from the Flows Page.  Previously, before granting access, I wanted email from you saying you understood just how fantastical and unreliable those Fantasy Flows could be (and very often are), but I got tired of that.  So have at it and enjoy, but please, please, please take those disclaimers seriously.

    March 1, 2012:
    Merged the Realtime, Daily and Fantasy Flows reports into a single Flows Page.  Select the flow report and format of your choice by means of the drop-down menus near the top of the page, then click Go.  The old pages (14 of them) are now defunct; visitors are redirected from each of the old pages to the single new one. 

    January 9, 2012:
    Added select 'Composite' maps to the Cross-Listing Pages.  Each 'Composite' map shows the relationship between gauges and runs for that drainage,  or in some cases logical sub-section of that drainage.  Each composite map appears under the most upstream gauge/run in the drainage.  So, for instance, for the North Yuba, the Composite entry appears under the Sierra City gauge,  since that is the most upstream gauge in the North Yuba drainage.  The following Composite maps are currently available:
    South Fork American River - Lower - Composite
    North Fork Kern River - Lower - Composite
    North Yuba River - Composite
    South Fork Payette River - Composite
    [For folks who are wondering why the SF Payette is included at this time, the answer is that the primary Dreamflows beta tester, Tracy from Boise, is from ... well ... Boise, so of course I'm going to include the SF Payette ].
    On the 'Composite' map, colored 'tracks' show the approximate path of each run.  A by-product of this is that, where available, tracks information is supplied even on non-composite maps.  For instance, tracks are now drawn by default for the Chili Bar run: 
    So. American - At Chili Bar
    Note that for Chili Bar, take-out locations downstream of the nominal take-out for the run are shown.  Admitedly it's a little funky to show take-outs (or in other situations put-ins) beyond the bounds of the recognized run, however I think that's just life; not everything fits neatly into a pre-conceived box, and folks put in/take out wherever's convenient.  Note also, that if a given function on the map is disabled (e.g Show Rapids is greyed out) it just means that information isn't available (yet).

    December 17, 2011:
    Added a 'landmark' marker type to reach maps, displayed as .  This type of marker is for locating lunch spots, parking areas when put-in/take-out requires hiking, etc.  A sample (but real) map with all the currently supported marker types appears here.

    December 8, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site: 
    San Francisquito Cr - At Stanford University

    November 26, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site: 
    San Antonio - Near Lockwood

    November 23, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site: 
    So. Gualala - Near Sea Ranch

    October 30, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site: 
    Rubicon - At Ellicott Bridge
    This data is being provided direct to Dreamflows by Placer County Water Agency as part of the relicensing process.  Huge thanks to Hilde Schweitzer for her work in encouraging Placer County Water Agency to make this data available.

    October 13, 2011:
    The following Washingston State Department of Ecology flow sites are now being reported with 15-minute data:
    Dosewallips - At Brinnon
    Nason Creek - Near Mouth
    Pilchuck Creek - At I-5 Bridge
    Squire Creek - At Squire Creek Park
    Deer Creek - Near Oso
    Jim Creek - At Whites Road
    Canyon Creek - Near Masonic Park
    Big Quilcene - Near Mouth
    Grays - Below Hwy-4 Bridge
    Germany Creek - At Mouth
    Little Klickitat - Near Wahkiacus
    Peshastin Creek - Near Wenatchee Confluence
    Little Wenatchee - Below Rainy Creek
    Soleduck - Near Quillayute
    Mad - Above Camp Nine
    Rock Creek - At Stevenson
    Wind River - At Stabler
    They were previously reported as daily average flow.

    September 28, 2011:
    Changed the way put-in/take-out locations are reporting on the cross-listing pages.  Previously, locations were displayed individually (each on its own map).  Now, a single map displays all published put-in and take-out locations, as well as the gauge location.  This should help make it much clearer what the relationships are, particularly between the run and its associated gauge.  Rapid locations are also displayed where available (very few at this point in time).  In addition, clicking on a given marker shows its lat/long co-ordinates, and also offers driving directions.

    To see how the new system works, try Chili Bar.  On the cross-listing page, click on the 'MAP' icon for the Chili Bar entry; this will take you here.

    September 6, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site: 
    Coyote Creek - Above Coyote Lake

    August 29, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site: 
    No. Cosumnes - At Sand Ridge Rd

    August 17, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington site: 
    No. Lewis - Above Muddy River
    Dreamflows started reporting this flow site at the request of Jeremy Lynn.

    July 4, 2011:
    Stopped reporting realtime flow information for Stony Creek - Inflow Black Butte Res, and started reporting daily averages instead.  The reason is that the realtime flow data jumped around so badly, and asymetrically, that it was almost impossible to make out what was going on.  Reporting daily average flow instead solves this problem.

    July 1, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California sites: 
    Slate Creek - Below Diversion Dam
    Lost Creek - Below Lost Creek Res
    So. Feather - Below SF Diversion Dam

    Jun 25, 2011:
    Added a 'Topo' display capability to the Using Google Maps option of the desktop customized flow reports page.  The topos are somewhat limited in zoom range, and at the lowest zoom some of the tiles are missing, which MyTopo will hopefully fix.  Either way, it's really cool of MyTopo to make these maps available to us.

    Jun 10, 2011:
    Added two search capabilities to the Google Maps option of the desktop customized flow reports page.  The first searches for a user-supplied address, city or zip code, while the second searches (by name) for one or more Dreamflows flow sites.

    Jun 5, 2011:
    Added a Google Maps option to the desktop customized flow reports page.  See the help page for an example and more information.  Note that by default it displays only your 'favorites' flow sites, however you can ask it to map all flow sites, or just realtime, if you wish.

    I have been pondering a maps version of the Dreamflows reports for some time (a couple years in fact), but could never decide how best to present it.  So when Mike Walkinshaw shared a link to his own mapping system for Dreamflows, I was fired up and used his system as a model.  Thank you, Mike, for the inspiration, and permission to model my system on yours.

    May 23, 2011:
    Dreamflows started offering customized flow reports for desktop/laptop computers.  Flows are reported in the same format as the existing realtime/daily flow reports, however, you get to specify which flow sites are reported, and in which order, by means of your favorites list.  This complements the Smart Phone system already in existence.  For more information, visit the relevant Help Page

    May 19, 2011:
    Started reporting realtime flow information for the following (existing) California site: 
    No. Yuba - Inflow New Bullards Bar
    Previously, this site reported only daily average flow.

    May 17, 2011:
    Dreamflows is once again reporting the California site: 
    No. Yuba - Below New Bullards Bar
    Yuba County Water Agency shared that CDEC's CPH site is Colgate Powerhouse flow, i.e. it's the diversion from New Bullards Bar, so subtracting CPH from BUL gives the release to the river. Thanks to Bob Center for discovering this and passing it on.

    May 11, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Utah site: 
    Escalante - Near Escalante
    Dreamflows started reporting this flow site at the request of Rorie Gotham.

    May 10, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California sites: 
    Deer Creek - Near Smartville
    Yuba - Below Deer Creek

    May 6, 2011:
    Dreamflows used to report flows for the following California site:
    Brush Creek - At Take-Out Bridge
    Added it back to the reports and the cross-listing page to provide a place-holder for reach and bulletin-board information.

    May 5, 2011:
    Started reporting realtime flow information on the pages for the following new California site: 
    McCloud - Below McCloud Dam
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge as a result of information provided by Paul Martzen.

    Apr 25, 2011:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Utah sites:
    Colorado - In Cataract Canyon
    Green - At Green River
    Dreamflows started reporting these gauges at the request of Jake Wallace. 

    Apr 24, 2011:
    Renamed Mobile Services to Custom Flows, and moved the pages to match.  Also renamed and re-organized some of the pages.  This is to allow more flexibility for future enhancements.  In particular, the Mobile entry in the blue banner at the top of Dreamflows pages has changed to Custom, which takes you to the Custom Flows Start page.

    Apr 17, 2011:
    Added the following flow sites to the Fantasy Flows page:
    Klamath - At Klamath Glen
    Trinity - At Hoopa
    Mad River - At Arcata
    Eel - At Fort Seward
    Sacramento - At Bend Bridge
    Stanislaus - At Orange Blossom Bridge
    West Walker - At Little Walker River
    Truckee - At Reno
    Carson - Near Carson City
    Retired the following flow sites from the Fantasy Flows page (due to insufficient data):
    No. Salmon - Near Forks of Salmon
    So. Salmon - At Forks of Salmon
    Salmon - At Somes Bar
    West Walker - At Walker

    Mar 27, 2011:
    Started offering Dreamflows Mobile Services (a free service).  To access, click on the Mobile link in the blue header of any Dreamflow page.  For details on how it works, click on the Mobile-Help link in the gray menubar on that page.  But briefly, this service offers the ability to create your own 'favorites' list of flow sites, effectively creating personalized Dreamflows flow reports.

    The flow information is formatted specifically for smart phones.  It's server based, not an 'app', so the same system works for iPhone, Android and others.  However, it also renders fine (though a little differently, and in a large font) on modern browsers like Firefox, Opera, IE, Safari and Chrome.  This means that a smart phone is not required - a PC works too.

    Mar 23, 2011:
    Started reporting realtime flow information on the pages for the following new California site: 
    Guadalupe - At San Jose
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge at the request of Brendan Curran.  [Brendan's interest is in playboating, and recommends the section from Children's Discovery Museum to Below 880 (2.6 miles)].

    Mar 6, 2011:
    Started reporting realtime flow information for the following (existing) California sites: 
    So. Feather - Below Little Grass Valley
    So. Feather - Below Forbestown Div Dam
    Previously, these sites reported only scheduled release information.  This new realtime information is courtesy of the South Feather Water and Power Agency. 

    Feb 19, 2011:
    Started publishing the Dreamflows Easywater Flows page.  This page reports gauges that are associated with easy whitewater (Class I and easy Class II).  A Realtime Flows version is also available.  Most of the Easywater flow sites already appear on other reports, since the same gauge serves both easy and hard runs.  However, the following California Easywater flow sites are all new (i.e. they don't appear elsewhere):
    So. Eel - At Miranda
    Sacramento - Below Keswick Dam
    Sacramento - At Vina-Woodson Bridge
    Tuolumne - Below La Grange Dam
    San Joaquin - Below Friant Dam
    San Joaquin - At Donny Bridge
    San Joaquin - At Gravelly Ford
    San Joaquin - At Mendota

    Nov 27, 2010:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon site:
    Grande Ronde - Near Perry

    Oct 14, 2010:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    No. Weber Creek - Inflow Weber Res
    Paul Martzen provided the inspiration for posting this gauge and most of the information on it.

    Jun 2, 2010:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    Mi. Yuba - Above Our House Dam
    This flow information comes to you courtesy of Yuba County Water Agency (YCWA).

    May 8, 2010:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California sites:
    Mi. Stanislaus - Below Sand Bar Flat Dam
    So. Stanislaus - At Strawberry

    Stanislaus - At Camp Nine

    Apr 11, 2010:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Colorado site:
    Yampa - At Steamboat Springs

    Apr 9, 2010:
    On the flow reports sites that are not reporting, and are known to be "discontinued", are now marked "Site not currently reporting".  Gauges come and go, so a gauge that's discontinued this year could be reporting again next year and vice versa.  As you might expect, it's often just a matter of funding.

    Jan 3, 2010:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    Trinity - At Pigeon Point

    Dec 25, 2009:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:

    Started reporting flow information for the following new Idaho site:
    Saint Joe - At Red Ives Ranger Stn
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Wyoming site:
    Mi. Powder - Near Barnum]

    Nov 1, 2009:
    For certain privileged sites, Dreamflows will be reporting more up-to-date information than previously. This is made possible by an improved download process, which in turn allows Dreamflows to download flow information for these privileged sites more often. These improvements will cause flow information for some sites to appear on the Realtime report significantly earlier than previously. These are the more famous of the privileged flow sites:
    Smith - At Jedediah Smith (plus estimated sites based on Jed Smith)
    Salmon - At Somes Bar (plus estimated sites based on Somes Bar)
    Mi. Feather - At Milsap Bar
    No. American - Inflow Lake Clementine
    Mi. American - Above Tunnel Chute
    So. American - At Chili Bar
    Kaweah - At Three Rivers

    Started reporting flow information for the following new California sites:
    Pit - Below Pit 4 Dam
    Pit - At Big Bend

    Mar 6, 2009:
    Added the following Idaho rating tables:
    Bruneau - Near Hot Springs
    Payette - Near Horseshoe Bend
    Mi. Salmon - At Middle Fork Lodge
    Added the following Oregon rating tables:
    Illinois - Near Kerby
    So. Rogue - Below Imnaha Creek
    Big Butte Creek - Near McLeod
    Rogue - At Raygold
    Rogue - Near Agness
    Owyhee - Near Rome

    Mar 9, 2009:
    John Donovan pointed out that the site name Mi. American - Rel Oxbow was misleading, since the gauge is somewhat downstream (below the NF MF confluence in fact).  As a result, the name has been changed to Mi. American - Above Tunnel Chute.

    Mar 6, 2009:
    Added the following California rating tables:
    Klamath - At Klamath Glen
    Mad River - Above Ruth Lake
    Eel - At Scotia
    Russian - Near Cloverdale
    Arroyo Valle - Above Lake Del Valle
    McCloud - Inflow McCloud Res

    Piru Creek - Below Lake Piru
    Spanish Creek - Near Keddie
    No. Yuba - Above Slate Creek
    Mi. Yuba - Below Our House Dam
    No. Kings - Below Dinkey Creek

    Mar 4, 2009:
    Added links (using as the image to click on) from the run reach/cross-listing pages to the color-coded flow trigger level page.  Nope, not a country flag; the red/green/yellow stripes represent the high/good/low colors used by Dreamflows for river flow levels.

    Mar 3, 2009:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    Indian Creek - Near Douglas City

    Mar 2, 2009:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    Fresno - Above Henley Lake
    Stopped reporting flows for Fresno - Inflow Hidden Dam since the quality of data reported by this new gauge should be far better.

    Feb 24, 2009:
    Added the following California rating tables:
    Indian Creek - Below Indian Falls
    American - Below Lake Natoma
    Stanislaus - At Orange Blossom Bridge
    Tuolumne - Below Early Intake
    Kaweah - At Three Rivers

    Klamath - At Orleans
    Cache Creek - At Rumsey Bridge (Gage)
    Truckee - Near Floriston

    Feb 20, 2009:
    Started reporting Fantasy flow information for:
    No. Salmon - Near Forks of Salmon
    So. Salmon - At Forks of Salmon
    Salmon - At Somes Bar
    and stopped reporting Fantasy flow information for:
    Pit - Below Pit 1 Powerhouse

    Feb 17, 2009:
    Added the following California rating tables:

    Bear Creek - Above Cache Creek
    No. Yuba - Below Goodyears Bar
    See the complete list of available tables.

    Feb 16, 2009:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington sites:
    Queets - Near Clearwater
    So. Snoqualmie - Near Garcia
    Sultan - Below Powerplant
    Sauk - Above White Chuck River
    Sauk - Near Sauk

    Feb 11, 2009:
    Started reporting gauge datum (i.e., elevation of the gauge above mean sea level) for most flow sites reported by Dreamflows.  The datum information is taken from a variety of sources, usually the reporting agency (e.g. USGS or CDEC).  The datum (when available) is appended to the gauge location information on the Cross-Listing Page.  For instance, the datum of the Chili Bar gauge is given as 931 feet.

    Jan 26, 2009:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington sites:
    Chewuch - At Winthrop
    Icicle Creek - Above Snow Creek
    Palouse - At Hooper
    Dungeness - Near Sequim

    Dec 15, 2008:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon site:
    Elk Creek - Above Rogue River

    Dec 14, 2008:
    Renamed 'Cache Creek - At Rumsey Bridge' to 'Cache Creek - At Rumsey Bridge (Calc)', and in addition started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    Cache Creek - At Rumsey Bridge (Gage)
    Historically, the "Gage" entry on the reports has been accurate only at higher flows, so that the "Calc" entry was the better option at lower flows.  For more detail, read the bulletin board entries for "Calc" and "Gage".

    Dec 8, 2008:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington sites:
    Spokane - At Spokane
    American - Near Nile
    Canyon Creek - Near Amboy
    No. Skokomish - Below Staircase
    So. Skokomish - Near Union
    White - Below Clearwater River

    Dec 1, 2008:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington sites:
    Mi. Nooksack - Near Deming
    So. Nooksack - At Saxon Bridge

    Nov 27, 2008:
    Stopped reporting flow information for the following Washington site:
    Elwha - Above Lake Mills
    Reason: USGS no longer reports flow information for this gauge.

    Nov 15, 2008:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new California site:
    East Walker - Near Bridgeport
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge at the request of Tom Yant.

    Nov 4, 2008:
    Replaced the old alphabetical listing page (ordered by flow site) with a new
    alphabetical listing page
    ordered by reach/run.  The new page contains more information, and presents it in a more intuitive and useful way.

    Oct 20, 2008:
    Started reporting flow information for the following new Washington sites:
    Wind River - At Stabler
    Panther Creek - Near Carson
    Rock Creek - At Stevenson
    Only gauge heights are available at this time.

    Oct 13, 2008:
    Added a link to Tom Saffell's California River Map in the Index section of the flow report pages.

    Jul 1, 2008:
    Added a guidebook entry for the following Oregon run:
    Applegate - First Bridge to Second Bridge

    Jun 19, 2008:
    Finally bowed to the inevitable: on the Idaho Page, renamed Payette - Below Deer Creek to So. Payette - Below Deer Creek.  Maps (USGS, DeLorme, Google) all clearly show the section between middle and north forks as being the Main Payette, but local usage insists it's the South Fork.  Who cares, really, as long as we're all talking about the same thing, and since the locals call it the 'South Fork', we'll follow suit.

    Jun 13, 2008:
    Started reporting reservoir elevations for the following new California site:
    American - Folsom Lake Elevation
    This information is intended to help determine the expected paddle out at the end of the Gorge run on the South Fork American.  Also paddle out for the Confluence run on the North Fork American (i.e. the run between the NF/MF confluence, and Rattlesnake Bar).  If you have information about which reservoir elevations correspond to what length of paddle out (either in distance or in time, for either of the above two runs), please share.

    May 28, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    New River - New River Gorge
    This is an obsolete (but real) river gauge whose readings are entered into Dreamflows every now and then by a local volunteer.  This means the most-recent data may be somewhat out-of-date.  If so, you can still compare the readings (which are actual flow) with Dreamflows' Denny estimate (which is estimated flow), and in this way "calibrate" the Denny gauge, i.e. get a feel for whether the Denny estimate is currently high, good or low, and compensate accordingly. 

    May 25, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Oregon site:
    Applegate - Below Applegate Dam

    May 7, 2008:
    Added several other rating tables.  See the complete list of available tables.

    May 6, 2008:
    Added the following rating tables:
    Scott - Near Fort Jones
    West Br Feather - At Whiskey Flat Bridge
    Mi. Cosumnes - At Mt Aukum Rd
    Updated the rating table for:
    So. Merced - At Wawona

    May 1, 2008:
    Started reporting estimated flows for the following new California site:
    Cherry Creek - Above Cherry Lake
    This EXPERIMENTAL calculation involves a lot of different gauges in different places, and the timing between them doesn't line up quite right.  So, expect to see glitches in the graph.  But, in general, during snowmelt (like now), expect to see a nice sine wave with the peak in the early hours of the morning, and the trough late afternoon.  Give feedback when you go up there please - let's learn how reliable the estimate is, and try to relate reported flows with what's good to go.

    May 1, 2008:
    Started reporting estimated flows for the following pre-existing California site:
    South Silver - At Autobahn
    Previously, for South Silver - At Autobahn, Low/Good/High flow levels were entered by hand when some benign person was up there and remembered to enter them.  Now, they're EXPERIMENTALLY estimated based on Ice House storage changes, and a guess at the Ice House outflow.  The estimate might not always be super accurate, but most of the time it should be reasonable. At least, that's the theory.  Feedback, please.

    Apr 30, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Oregon site:
    Applegate - Inflow Applegate Lake
    Added a corresponding guidebook entry:
    Upper Applegate River (Road access to Applegate Lake)

    Apr 29, 2008:
    Switched from using TopoZone to ACME Mapper for gauge, put-in and take-out locations.  Wow, ACME Mapper is way more versatile, way slicker.  Image registration seems to be a problem with these mapping services though - they don't all display a given lat/long co-ordinate in the same place, nor do they necessarily display a given GPS waypoint in the correct location.  But, generally, the supplied co-ordinates should get you close enough to locate what you're interested in.

    Apr 28, 2008:
    Added a new scheduled-release page:
    South Fork Feather - Below Forbestown Diversion Dam

    Apr 20, 2008:
    Stopped reporting flow information for the following California site:
    So. Yuba - At Kingvale Bridge
    It has been replaced by the new So. Yuba - Near Cisco realtime gauge.  If you want information on suitable stick gauge heights (near the put-in for the Summit run), see the online guides at
    Upper South Yuba - Summit Run
    Upper South Yuba - Spaulding Run

    Apr 18, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new or changed California sites:
    So. Yuba - Near Cisco (new)
    Fordyce Creek - Below Fordyce Dam (changed)
    So. Yuba - At Lang Crossing (new)
    Bear - At Hwy 20 Bridge (new)
    Bear - Below Drum Afterbay (new)
    Fordyce Creek - Below Fordyce Dam used to be a scheduled-release site, but is now a realtime site reporting gauge data.

    Information for all of the above five sites is being provided by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E).  This is to support boating flow studies, as a part of FERC relicensing.

    Apr 15, 2008:
    The old region/section
    California - West Slope
    was getting way too unwieldy, so split it into two new ones:
    California - West Slope - Northern
    California - West Slope - Southern

    Apr 13, 2008:
    Dreamflows online reports now have two operating modes: all sections at once (the only mode available until now, where the entire page is displayed all at once), and one section at a time (a new mode where only the currently-selected section/region is displayed).  An example of a section is California North Coast.  Pages using one section at a time are much smaller, therefore quicker to load and display on your browser.  This mode is primarily intended for visitors using a mobile device (e.g. cell-phone), where both bandwidth and memory tend to be an issue.  The downside of one section at a time is, naturally, that only one section is displayed, so displaying a different section requires a page reload.  The default mode is all sections at once for standard-format reports, and one section at a time for compact-format reports.  Links are provided for switching between modes.  This enhancement was made at the request of Mark D'Agostino.

    Apr 3, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    No. Yuba - Above Slate Creek

    Apr 2, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington sites:
    Mad - Above Camp Nine
    Soleduck - Near Quillayute
    Dreamflows started reporting these gauges at the request of Tom O'Keefe.

    Mar 30, 2008:
    Renamed the following Oregon sites:
    Deschutes - Above Lake Billy Chinook to Deschutes - Near Culver
    Crooked - Above Lake Billy Chinook to Crooked - Below Opal Springs
    These changes were at the suggestion of Tom O'Keefe.

    Mar 29, 2008:
    Added a System-Wide Profile section to your profile.  The new features give you better control over your Dreamflows login session.  For more information, see the help page.

    Mar 25, 2008:

    Mar 17, 2008:
    The Dreamflows account login page now has a "Keep me logged in" option.  If you check this box when you login, you'll stay logged in until you log out again, even if you use your account only occasionally.  This option is intended for the case where you have exclusive access to the computer you're using.  For more details, see the help page.

    Mar 16, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington sites:
    Little Wenatchee - Below Rainy Creek

    Squire Creek - At Squire Creek Park
    Deer Creek - Near Oso
    Canyon Creek - Near Masonic Park
    Jim Creek - At Whites Road
    Pilchuck Creek - At I-5 Bridge
    Dreamflows started reporting these gauges at the request of Tom O'Keefe.

    Mar 12, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington site:
    Nason Creek - Near Mouth
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge at the suggestion of Tom O'Keefe.

    Feb 22, 2008:
    Added a dedicated Bear River photos page.

    Feb 19, 2008:
    Added a FlowSlope field to the CSV-format flow reports.  See the CSV Info page for more information.

    Feb 18, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new New Mexico sites:
    Gila - Near Gila
    Gila - Near Redrock

    Feb 8, 2008:
    Started reporting daily snapshot flow data for the following new California sites:
    Bear - Below Dutch Flat Afterbay
    Canyon Creek - Below Bowman Lake
    Mi. Yuba - Below Milton Dam
    In addition, Dreamflows is reporting daily snapshot flow data for the following existing California sites:
    Bear - At Hwy 174 Bridge
    Canyon Creek - Below French Lake
    Mi. Yuba - Below Jackson Meadows
    Information for all of the above six sites is being provided by Nevada Irrigation District (NID).  This is to support boating flow studies, as a part of FERC relicensing.

    Jan 25, 2008:
    Added a alphabetical listing page, of all flow sites currently reported by Dreamflows.

    Jan 16, 2008:
    The Date: field of alert emails shows the time when the alert was generated.  By default, this is reported in Pacific Time (PDT in summer, and PST in winter) but you can now change this with the Time Zone and Daylight Savings fields in your profile.

    Jan 12, 2008:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington site:
    Mi. Snoqualmie - Near Tanner
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge at the request of Matthew Davidson.

    Jan 8, 2008:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following California sites:
    Merced - Red Bud Gauge (data is no longer available)
    Brush Creek - At Take-Out Bridge (data is no longer available)

    Dec 18, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Oregon site:
    Umatilla - Near Umatilla
    Dreamflows started reporting this gauge at the request of Pat Wright.

    Dec 17, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California sites:
    Ea. Russian - Above Lake Mendocino
    Big Sulphur Cr - Near Cloverdale
    Arroyo Mocho - Near Livermore
    Indian Creek - Below Indian Falls
    West Br Feather - At Whiskey Flat Bridge
    Mi. Cosumnes - At Mt Aukum Rd
    Tuolumne - Above Hetch Hetchy Res
    Note 1:  Ea. Russian - Above Lake Mendocino is a USGS realtime gauge.  It replaces the old CDEC calculation of inflow to Lake Mendocino (previously reported on Dreamflows as Russian - Inflow Lake Mendocino).
    Note 2:  Dreamflows reported Indian Creek - Below Indian Falls briefly earlier this year as a NOAA/NWS site, and removed it since NWS's rating table of the time was pure fiction (yes, really).  However, this is now a CDEC gauge with a proper rating table, so the reported flows should be good.
    Note 3:  Mi. Cosumnes - At Mt Aukum Rd is a CDEC gauge, and replaces the Dreamflows estimate at Mi. Cosumnes - At No. Fk. Confluence.  The new flow site is at a different location though - it's near the put-in for the lower (usual) Middle Cosumnes run, whereas the old estimate was at the take-out.
    Note 4:  Tuolumne - Above Hetch Hetchy Res is a USGS realtime gauge.  It replaces the old daily average inflow calculation (previously reported on Dreamflows as Tuolumne - In Hetch Hetchy Res).

    Dec 10, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington sites:
    Cascade - At Marblemount
    Methow - Near Pateros
    Chiwawa - Near Plain

    Dec 3, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Oregon sites:
    Winberry Creek - Near Lowell
    Deschutes - Above Lake Billy Chinook
    Crooked - At Crooked River Ranch
    Crooked - Above Lake Billy Chinook
    Metolius - Above Lake Billy Chinook

    Nov 28, 2007:
    Started reporting gauge height for the following new California site:
    Smith - Steel Pipe At Gasquet
    "Bearfoot" Brad Camden visits this unofficial gauge site (the twin brown steel pipes at the confluence of the North and Middle Forks of the Smith in Gasquet) each morning, and posts his findings on Dreamflows.  Brad runs shuttles on the Smith; for more information visit his web page.

    Nov 25, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California/Oregon site:
    Klamath - Below J.C. Boyle Plant
    and renamed the pre-existing Klamath - At J.C. Boyle Plant site to:
    Klamath - J.C. Boyle Schedule
    Thus, Klamath - Below J.C. Boyle Plant is a gauge site reporting actual flow in the river, while Klamath - J.C. Boyle Schedule reports expected scheduled releases.

    Nov 5, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Oregon sites:
    No. Rogue - Above Lost Creek Lake (realtime gauge site replaces virtual site No. Rogue - Below North Fork Res)
    So. Rogue - Below Imnaha Creek
    Mi. Willamette - Below Hills Creek Res (realtime gauge site replaces the daily Mi. Willamette - Release Hills Creek Res)
    Row River - Above Dorena Lake (realtime site gauge replaces the daily Row River - Inflow Dorena Lake)
    Stopped reporting flows for the following Oregon sites:
    No. Rogue - Below North Fork Res (replaced by No. Rogue - Above Lost Creek Lake, see above)
    Mi. Willamette - Release Hills Creek Res (replaced by Mi. Willamette - Below Hills Creek Res, see above)
    Row River - Inflow Dorena Lake (replaced by Row River - Above Dorena Lake, see above)
    Changed reporting of the following existing Oregon sites:
    Big Butte Cr - Near McLeod (now reporting USGS instead of NOAA data; same data but more consistently reported)
    So. Coquille - At Powers (now reporting USGS instead of NOAA data; same data but more consistently reported)
    McKenzie - Below Trail Bridge Dam (now reporting USGS instead of NOAA data; same data but more consistently reported)
    Quartzville Cr - Near Cascadia (now reporting USGS instead of NOAA data; same data but more consistently reported)
    Clackamas - At Estacada (now reporting USGS instead of NOAA data; same data but more consistently reported)
    No. John Day - At Monument (previously an estimated flow site, now a USGS gauge site)

    Nov 1, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Idaho sites:
    Blackfoot - Near Shelley
    Camas Creek - Near Blaine
    Re-ordered the Idaho flows page to follow the Snake from Wyoming to Washington, i.e. as it flows downstream.  The idea is to group physically close flow sites together on the report, in a reasonably logical way.

    Oct 27, 2007:
    Replaced the link to the current USBR PDF file for
    Trinity River Release Schedule
    with a Dreamflows calendar-style page.  It's pretty boring right now since the current flow is 300 cfs all day every day, but it'll be more useful when the 2008 schedule is posted. 

    Also added a Historical Schedules section to the
    Schedules Page
    and added the 2006 Tuolumne River - Release Holm Powerhouse schedule to it.

    Oct 26, 2007:
    Added the following rating tables (Bear - At Hwy 174 Bridge and So. Merced - At Wawona were added this week, the others a little while back):
    Indian Creek - Near Happy Camp
    No. Trinity - At Helena
    Trinity - At Cedar Flat
    Mi. Eel - Near Dos Rios
    Bear - At Hwy 174 Bridge
    So. Merced - At Wawona

    Oct 24, 2007:
    Started reporting flows again for the following California sites:
    So. Merced - At Wawona
    So. Merced - At Hwy 140 Bridge
    Previously, So. Merced - At Wawona was reported as an estimate, but now it's an official CDEC gauge site.  Since So. Merced - At Hwy 140 Bridge is an estimate based on So. Merced - At Wawona, and since So. Merced - At Wawona is now a gauge, the So. Merced - At Hwy 140 Bridge estimate is much more reliable than previously.

    Aug 29, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    Piru Creek - Below Lake Piru

    Jul 26, 2007:
    Added a Search link to the header of every Dreamflows page.  Clicking on this enables you to search the entire Dreamflows website (including Bulletin Board), using Google Custom Search. 

    Jul 18, 2007:
    Added a guidebook entry for the following Oregon run:
    South Fork Rogue - Gorge Run

    Jul 10, 2007:
    Started publishing the Dreamflows Fantasy Flows page for California/Nevada.  This page is a combination of reasonably reliable and predictable scheduled release information, and computer-modeled future flows - the latter being the reason for the name of the page.

    Jul 4, 2007:
    Created a NF Mokelumne Release Schedule page with 2007 scheduled release information.

    Jul 3, 2007:
    Added a glossary of river-running terms page.  Most of the entries are serious, but some are just for fun.

    Jul 2, 2007:
    Created a NF Feather Release Schedule page with 2007 scheduled release information.

    Jun 28, 2007:
    Created a Pit River Release Schedule page with 2007 scheduled release information.

    Jun 27, 2007:
    Created a SF American - Chili Bar Release Schedule page with 2007 scheduled release information.

    Jun 23, 2007:
    Dreamflows-generated day and month graphs now feature a vertical line showing when the graph was generated.  The "future" area is shaded.

    Jun 22, 2007:
    Replaced the old photos on the Kings photos page with a new set.

    Jun 18, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    Tuolumne - Outflow New Don Pedro Res
    Both reservoir outflow and elevation are reported, to help you estimate how much of a paddle out you're facing on the Lower "T".

    Jun 13, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington site:
    Joseph Creek - Near Mouth

    Jun 12, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    Eel - Inflow Van Arsdale

    Jun 7, 2007:
    The existing Dreamflows California site:
    Eel - Rel Lake Pillsbury
    is now reporting the daily average outflow from Lake Pillsbury.  Note that this is the flow right below Lake Pillsbury - in winter, the flow on the Pillsbury run itself will likely be somewhat more than this, due to side-streams.

    Jun 7, 2007:
    Changed the way links from flow reports into the bulletin board are handled.  For instance, check the entries under the BBS heading in the realtime report.  The old icon and topic-count system has been largely replaced with the date of the most recent post for the given flow site.  For "recent" posts, the link is displayed as mon day in red, e.g. Jun 1.  For "older" posts, the link is displayed in blue or purple, depending on whether you've recently followed the link or not (e.g. Jun 1 or Jun 1).  If the post is more than six months old, only the year is displayed, e.g. 2006.  For more detail, click on the BBS heading in one of the reports.

    Jun 4, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington sites:
    Dosewallips - At Brinnon
    So. Stillaguamish - Near Granite Falls

    May 31, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington site:
    No. Nooksack - Below Cascade Creek

    Washougal - At Hathaway Park

    May 25, 2007:
    Added the following article:
    First Descent of Succor Creek, Oregon

    May 21, 2007:
    Updated the
    Tuolumne River Release Schedule
    page with 2007 scheduled release information.

    May 4, 2007:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following Idaho site (since data is no longer available):
    Henrys Fork - Below Coffee Pot Rapids

    May 1, 2007:
    Added Your name and Primary river interest fields to Dreamflows account profiles, so members can share this information if they wish.

    Apr 19, 2007:
    Where possible, for gaged flow sites like the No. American - Inflow Lake Clementine, Dreamflows provides links to 4-day or 5-day agency-generated graphs, rather than drawing the graphs itself.  Not only does this help to keep down processing overhead, but their graphs present you with the most recent possible data.  Dreamflows is continuing this policy, but is now generating 30-day and 3-year graphs of its own.  The No. American - Inflow Lake Clementine graph shows how this works.  So far, only a few gaged flow sites offer 30-day and 3-year graphs, but in time all gaged flow sites will be upgraded.

    Apr 17, 2007:
    Added a 'Sticky' capability to the Bulletin Board.  When listing a forum, sticky topics are listed first.  This option is settable by the Admin only - to have a topic made sticky, contact chris@dreamflows.com

    Apr 2, 2007:
    Dreamflows has consolidated the Bulletin Board, Alerts and Reports Via Email (now called Email Reports) systems all under one login/username/password umbrella.  The overall result is a somewhat new look, with better access to your Alerts and Email Reports account information, and improved navigation.  Here's more information on what has changed.

    Mar 28, 2007:
    Added the following article:
    Calaveras River - New Hogan to Jenny Lind

    Mar 12, 2007:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Nevada site:
    Carson - Near Carson City

    Mar 7, 2007:

    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    Mark West Creek - Near Santa Rosa

    Jan 23, 2007:
    Added RSS feeds to Dreamflows.  Three feeds are available - one with all pages with new content, one wth all pages except the realtime page, and the last without any flow report pages.  You can sign up for RSS feeds from the Home Page.

    Jan 13, 2007:
    Added a new rating table for the following California site:
    Kern - At Kernville

    Dec 30, 2006:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following California estimated site:
    So. Salmon - Below Methodist Creek
    See the bulletin board entry for details.

    Dec 22, 2006:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following Oregon site (since data is no longer available):
    Blue - Below Tidbits Creek

    Dec 12, 2006:
    On the various cross-listing pages, changed the linking mechanism (from the name of the run on the left, to the name of the guide's website on the right).  Added links to several Cali Product and Jefferson State Creeking online guides.

    Dec 6, 2006:
    Replaced the old phpBB bulletin board with a new home-grown Dreamflows bulletin board.  Also retired the various suppressed flow sites pages, merging each one into its respective normal flow report.

    Sep 5, 2006:
    Replaced the old plain-text headers on all the Dreamflows web pages with a steel-blue banner, which in turn includes common useful links.

    Aug 30, 2006:
    On the various cross-listing pages, added a link from each flow site to the corresponding graph for that site.  Each graph link is identified by the symbol.

    Aug 29, 2006:
    Added Daily Flows, Realtime Flows and Dreamflows Home links to the top of graphs generated by Dreamflows.  This makes it easier to get to Dreamflows if you've come to the graph from somewhere else (a bookmark, say).

    Aug 9, 2006:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    Mi. San Joaquin - At Devil's Postpile
    Jul 31, 2006:
    Added model limit lines to those Dreamflows-generated graphs which are driven by statistical estimating models.  In general, such models are valid only between a range of flows.  The lo (brown) and hi (purple) model limit lines, respectively, show the lower and higher limits of the valid range.  Also, the "look" of the graphs has changed somewhat.

    Jul 11, 2006:
    Created a CSV Conversions page so visitors can load Dreamflows reports into:

    Jun 27, 2006:
    Added "Current Flow" information to most online guidebook entries.

    Jun 23, 2006:
    Updated the guidebook entry for:
    Susan River - Susanville Run (Devil's Corral to Hobo Camp)

    Jun 17, 2006:
    Started generating reports in Dreamflows CSV format:
    Realtime
    Daily - California and Nevada
    Daily - Northwest States
    Daily - Four Corners
    Jun 7, 2006:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    Cache Creek - Below Clear Lake

    Jun 1, 2006:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    San Joaquin - At Miller Crossing

    May 25, 2006:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Idaho site:
    Boise - At Glenwood Bridge

    May 7, 2006:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California sites:
    Mono Creek - Below Lake Edison
    San Joaquin - Below Mammoth Pool Res

    Apr 13, 2006:
    Started reporting flows for the following new Washington site:
    Elwha - Above Lake Mills

    Mar 25, 2006:
    Added a trigger levels page.  These values determine if a flow is marked "low", "okay", "optimum" or "high" on the Dreamflows reports.

    Mar 17, 2006:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California sites:
    Piru Creek - Above Pyramid Lake
    Sespe Creek - Near Fillmore

    Started reporting flows for the following new California sites:
    Putah Creek - Below Lake Berryessa
    So. Feather - Below Forbestown Div Dam

    Jan 30, 2006:
    Added a new Dreamflows Alerts "Forgotten Password" page to allow forgetful subscribers to reset their passwords.

    Jan 4, 2006:
    Started adding links to rating tables (where available) on the CA Cross-Listing page.  The symbol (on the cross-listing page) is a link to the rating table for that gauge.  Only those rating tables for flow sites which are currently being reported by Dreamflows are accessible from the cross-listing pages.  Obsolete ones (which may be useful to you since the gauges are obsolete and therefore not reported, but may still be physically present on the river) are still accessible from the Whitewater Gauge Rating Tables page.

    Dec 30, 2005:
    Started reporting flows for the following new California site:
    So. Salmon - At Forks Of Salmon
    Scott Harding observed that the existing "So. Salmon - Below Methodist Creek" estimate reported by Dreamflows, which is based on historical USGS data, seems to always be lower than actual.  So, he has developed a formula for this new virtual gage located 6 miles downstream, at the South Fork bridge at Forks Of Salmon.  Note that this is a work in progress - the formula may well change as the season progresses. 

    Dec 14, 2005:
    Regenerated the rating tables on the Dreamflows whitewater gauge rating tables page, downloading new rating tables (where available) in the process.  The new format includes the rating table in numerical form.

    Dec 6, 2005:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following California sites (since gauge data is no longer available):
    No. Trinity - At Helena
    No. Eel - At Mina Bridge
    Black Butte - Above Middle Fork Eel
    Mi. Eel - Below Black Butte River
    The No. Trinity and No. Eel sites will most likely come back (as estimates) in due course.

    Dec 1, 2005:
    Started displaying confidence-range information on daily and monthly graphs for those flow sites which Dreamflows estimates, and for which confidence-range information is available.

    Nov 10, 2005:
    Added a river levels page, so you can report the river flow you believe you had on a run which was estimated by Dreamflows.  Also, added confidence information (for estimated flows) to the Dreamflows reports.

    Nov 9, 2005:
    Changed the formatting of the flow reports.  Previously, links weren't underlined (since this makes the text easier to read).  However, this caused confusion for visitors who are used to links' being underlined.  So, links are once more underlined.  This also paves the way for other changes coming soon.

    Oct 20, 2005:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following California sites (since the estimates are apparently too unreliable):
    Pit - Below Fall River Mills
    Merced - At Red Bud
    So. Merced - At Wawona
    So. Merced - At Hwy 140 Bridge

    Oct 18, 2005:

    Dec 16, 2003:
    Linked all the Dreamflows photos in a set (e.g. all the photos on the American photos page) in a ring, using forward and back arrows.  This enables you to more easily navigate through all the photos in a set.

    Dec 12, 2003:

    Klamath - At Klamath Glen
    Started reporting flows for the following new Oregon site:
    Rogue - At Grants Pass
    Started reporting flows for the following old Oregon site (since data is once more available):
    McKenzie - Below Trail Bridge Dam

    Dec 8, 2003:

    Nov 10, 2003:
    Stopped reporting flows for
    Kings - Below North Fork
    and started reporting flows for
    Kings - Inflow Pine Flat Res
    instead.   Dreamflows used to report Inflow Pine Flat Res, then switched to Below North Fork.   However, this turns out to have been a mistake - Inflow Pine Flat Res is the better site for determining the flow on the Hidden Kings run.

    Oct 24, 2003:
    Stopped reporting flows for the following California site (since data is no longer available):
    Mad River - Below Ruth Lake

    Sep 29, 2003:

    Apr 13, 2003:
    Started reporting actual gauge heights for the following California run:
    Merced - Red Bud Gauge
    This is in addition to the traditional Merced - At Red Bud Dreamflows estimate.   Note the distinction between the two - one is a flow estimate, the other real gauge height measurements.   In time (soon, hopefully), we'll have a rating table to convert the Red Bud gauge heights to flows, at which time things should become somewhat simpler.

    Apr 11, 2003:
    Added a guidebook entry for the following California run:

    Added a new Race/Rodeo/Wildwater Schedules page.

    Feb 7, 2003:
    Stopped reporting flows for
    Kings - Inflow Pine Flat Res
    and started reporting flows for
    Kings - Below North Fork
    instead. The two sites may sound similar in concept, but are quite different. The old site reported the calculated total inflow to Pine Flat Reservoir, which included more than just the inflow due to the Kings. Also, because the calculation was based on change in reservoir storage, it wasn't very accurate and bounced around a lot. The new site reports the flow right above the reservoir and is the flow on the Kings River only. Also, since it's a gauge, it's much more accurate.

    Feb 6, 2003:
    Added a new Frequently Asked Questions page.
