thanks! I have been looking at the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction service graphs and trying to make all that make sense in my mind so that will help. When you say 4 - 5.5 is that looking at the FLOW side (Right side of the chart)?

I did not intend it to be a reprimand! It can take a while to get replies to posts, if you are in a hurry searching is faster.

Welcome to the Best Forum site in Oregon.:yay:

The Wilson fishes great from 4.0 to 7.0 feet if the water is not chocolate milk in color. All the rivers fish best when the river level is falling after a freshet. Like it is right now!

Wilson River Hydrograph This is the site I use for the Wilson. :)

The Stage (ft) is on the left and the Flow (cfs) is on the right. If you note the flow rate at 4.0 ft and 7.0 ft you'll see that it amounts to about 10X the water in the river at 7 as there is at 4! There is good reason to be very cautious as the river level increases.
