River flow websites from National Weather Service

The NWS River Forecast websites divide the lower 48 states into 12 regions. Each regional center reports river guidance forecasts at a variety of stations. Green = normal, Orange = above monitor, Red = above flood, Purple = above danger stage. Pointing at a station on the map displays the current flow and the forcasted flow for the next 5 days.

The California Nevada River Forecast Center has 88 flood forecast reporting stations and 72 other points reporting. Some of these gauge stations are on or near the whitewater river sections, while many others are downstream in the flatwater sections. I think that this site will be very useful as a trip planning resource for kayaking, rafting, and canoeing.
