I just finished checking Dickson's river level web-site. What's up with the yo-yo flow levels on the Skagit? I was there yesterday, though we spent most of our day on the Sauk we did stop at the end of the day on the Skagit - it was full! Is it really fluctuating as wildly as the graph shows or is this a glitch in the USGS information? Its been showing this pattern for some time. If this type of fluctuation has been occuring it cannot be good for the river or most things in it. As well, it will be very annoying as the steelhead season hits full swing.

I've seen this on other rivers too - unpredictable spikes and variations that don't seem to fit.
My guess is that it's some sort of problem with the readings (unless they've hired a psycho at the dam)!
One thing I've noticed about all the dam-controlled rivers is that their flows are predictable - if they raise it, it will probably stay up for awhile. I can't imagine they'd be raising and lowering the flow each day without some sort of explanation.
