Bitterroot Valley Waters Continue to Recede

Though the Bitterroot River is still running fast and muddy, the conditions are improving valley-wide.

High water season seems to have reached its peak, with the river gauges at Bell Crossing and Darby continuing to trend lower over the last week.

As of 6:45 a.m. Friday, June 13, the Bell Crossing level was 8.47 feet, with flood stage at 11 feet.

Meanwhile, at the Darby gauge at 6:15 a.m. June 13, the river level was 5.45 feet, with flood level at 7.5.

In the forests and outlying areas, there are still places where water is running over the road, and other areas that have been damaged by flooding. Drive carefully!

By the way, if you’re planning to float the Bitterroot River, our advice at KLYQ is to wait a couple more weeks.
