EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 35,000 ft³/s during flood of July 8-9, 1935, on basis of slope-area measurement of peak flow.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION.--Prior to construction of Almond Lake in 1949, maximum discharge, 17,600 ft³/s, May 28, 1946, gage height, 18.09 ft; minimum daily discharge, 12 ft³/s, Aug. 28, Aug. 30 to Sept. 3, 1939; minimum instantaneous discharge not determined.
