Data for this site includes both stage and temperature for most data sets. It is inluded in the zipped files. As with most sites there are some data gaps, mostly in the 90s and early 2000s.
Note: The Water Year and the Calendar Year are not the same. The Water Year (WY) begins on October 1st of the preceding Calendar Year. It is a hydrologic measure not a calendar measure.
For example: Water Year 2012 begins in October 2011 and includes November and December 2011 and would also include January through September of 2012.
McLane Creek medium flow and high flow - The creek ranges from a trickle to raging over its banks during floods as seen in the photos at the bottom of the page.
