Still new to all of this and I don't live in the gorge. For those of us that would like to look at the river data to see when the HR sandbar or Lyle sandbar will show up, what would you suggest? I can find some info on river depth below the JD Dam but I don't have a good idea on what it is telling me. Thanks!!

Hood River gauge is reading 80’ today, flow at the Dalles around 470,000 cubic feet per second.

https://www.nwrfc.noaa.gov/stp/station/stpplot/stpplot.cgi?TDAO3

I think the sand bar appears around 77-78’.

Water is high and current is fast.

Looks like a few more weeks of high water.

The sand bar is not showing yet. Just some white caps.

Really? I’m here, and I’m actually looking at a sandbar.

From the WS side I see 2 sandbar islands 25+ yards from shore, flow is down to 365,000, ecoli up 10% thanks to the Dalles sewage plant.
