    Angry Birch creek water level

    The USGS used to list the water level for Birch Creek at 12 mile. It no longer does. Anyone know of a way to find the current water level? Thanks

    The Goodpaster gage would be your closest reference or the NWS Chatanika gage. These would only help though if the rain events are widespread other than that you could try to look for rain Gauges close by. If it hasn't rained in more than a week the water is low to super low.

    Also there might still be one on Beaver creek that would give you an even better reference. If its high on the beaver it's likely high on the birch.

    Hi,

    I think the Chatanika would be a good reference as well (at the Steese Highway). I went to the Birch launch near 12 Mile on Sunday, and it was low there like the Chatanika.
