Thought I'd share a bookmark... Those interested in the Rogue will find this link (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/or/nwis/current?type=flow&group_key=basin_cd&search_site_no_station_nm=rogue&format=pre) useful.

If you click on the Dodge Bridge link, you can get turbidity info at a fairly central upper river location, currently way bad at 326 NTU...

...oh, and if you have ever wondered about Nephelometric Turbidity Units, this is a good explanation (http://lakeaccess.org/russ/turbidity.htm) even if it is about lakes...

You can get the outflow for the dam at RM 155 at 800 472 2434. Dodge bridge (approx. RM 140)is just about half way to Medford (RM 130) top 30 miles of water). So if you take one, subtract the other you've got a good idea how much water Elk, Trail, Big Butte, etc., creeks are putting into the river. From Dodge bridge to Medford there are some small creeks that add flow, the 'major one' being Little Butte creek just above Tou Ville park (Saturday/Sunday mornings Charity clinic site).

The link Gus has put up also includes RayGold dam (approx. RM 120 which is directly north of Medford (and where the fish counter is located). This flow will give you the water conditions going by the runs located in the immediate Medford area.
