    Default Matanuska water level

    Anyone looked at the river lately? I want to get my raft on the water this weekend. Looking to put in below Lions Head section.

    still pretty low, not a lot of snow to melt back there and the glaciers aren't melting fast yet

    USGS has a gauge at the bridge in Palmer. http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=15284000

    I use an app called fishhead on my phone for convenience as it lets you list all the rivers you're interested in and provides great graphs, water temp (if available), weather forecasts, and tide info.
