New Interactive Watershed Map Site ~ Truckee River, Middle Fork Feather River, Yuba River, North Fork Feather River, and more!
Last week I had a conversation about what is this Guidebox thing at City Council coffee shop in Nevada City with the dude sitting next to me. That led to the topic of watersheds, mapping, and flow data. Andreas introduced me to his site https://watershedmap.org/ As fly anglers we are information junkies always seeking out the knowledge that could lead to a better fishing and life experience.
The site is a work in progress and will be upgraded as time marches on. Once you have the map up, and zoom into the watershed you're most interested in, you can then use the many different layers to find the info you need. Flow gauges, diversions, fish barriers, tributaries, mainstem rivers, and snow overlays are just a few of the many different options you can choose from. Check out the site, give it a book mark, and add it to your tool belt!
