Water Temperature and Levels

Water temperature is critical to fishing success, especially in spring and fall.  Use the map below to link to find USGS  water level gauges that report water temperature in real-time (a list of sites is below the map).  If a gauge is not shown, it does not collect water temperature information.  You can also check out our general water resources below the gauge listing.
