ice During winter months, stage and discharge may be affected by ice in the channel. Data values reported on these pages may be significantly higher or lower than the actual streamflow. Adjustments to the data will be done after detailed analyses. Ice affected values identified on graphs () may be viewed by choosing the table output format. If you have questions about these values, please contact the Idaho Water Data Maintainer.
