Location.--Latitude 48°36'17", Longitude
121°23'54", in SE 1/4 Section 17, Township 36 North, Range 11
East, in Skagit County, Hydrologic Unit 17110005, Mt.
Baker Snoqualmie national Forest, on left bank 1.25 miles downstream
from Oakes Creek, 5.5 miles northeast of Marblemount, and at river mile
area is 49.7 mi2. Elevation
of gage is 410 feet above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map.
In a recent wind storm, a
cluster of trees fell into the gage pool, hitting and possibly
moving the stage sensor. Until crews can safely access the sensors,
it is unknown how accurate the stage is. Also, the stage/discharge
relationship is likely affected by the trees in the river. Use
computed discharges with discretion. (Message posted
