Lower Yuba River Flows


*Notice: Anticipated flows are always preliminary and are provided for informational purposes only. Flows are subject to real-time changes in weather and runoff conditions, and operations related to hydroelectric generation, flood control, and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission license requirements. This data is not intended to be used for flood forecasting. For personal safety, those on or near the river should always proceed with caution and be aware of changing weather, river conditions and the very cold water.

Forecasted Flows

Information below was updated on 6/19/2018.

Notice: Storm runoff and flood control operations can substantially alter flows in the Yuba River, which could result in rapid changes. Information is expressed as average daily flow in cubic feet per second (cfs). Additional information can be viewed at 

Short-term Forecast

During June, flows from Englebright Reservoir will range from 2,000 cfs to 2,300 cfs to maintain a target flow of 1,500 cfs below Daguerre Point Dam. Starting July 1, YCWA will reduce flows from Englebright  by approximately 200 cfs per day until the flow target of 900 cfs at Marysvsille gage is obtained.

Long-term Forecast

New Bullards Bar Reservoir is operated to preserve the flood pool, therefore storm and flood control operations may require higher or lower releases. The target flow below Daguerre Point Dam for June is 1,500 cfs. The target flow for July will be 900 cfs, and for August will be 600 cfs.
