Here is a summary of some of the major river surfing waves in Colorado, along with their current flows. A couple biggies are missing because they don’t have accurate USGS gauges, and other lesser-known waves are omitted for the sake of clarity. If you want the full list of waves, check here.
Note that if a gauge shows a big negative number, it’s probably because it’s offline for the season.
Note that this flow page is a work in progress. As it turns out, a fair amount of web design wizardry is required to pull off what I want to do here. If you happen to be a word press or php wizard and want to help out, contact me. In the meantime, here is a quick rundown of what major waves are working in Colorado:
