River Levels

It can be difficult to know whether a specific river is runnable. Our favorite gauge page makes it easy to decide whether a river is too high or too low: dckayak.com/river-levels
Remember: green = runnable, red = too low, blue = too high.

Don’t see your favorite river? The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) maintains numerous hydrologic gauges on rivers throughout the United States. Conditions data may include temperature, water level, and discharge – often display in cubic feet per second (CFS). See regional rivers listed below.

Remember to compare the Maumee and Sandusky gauge with our recommended levels: Toledo River Gang Water Levels
