Can someone clarify this arguement for me?. I had always assumed the gauges read depth of the river, but a buddy of mine said, no its a measurement above sea level. Makes some sense to me ,but you can't tell me Prince George is only 11 meters above. Hopefully someone can clear this up :confused:
Cheers,

There are 2 readings and neither is sea level :happy:, one is river height measured on some form of guage and if you choose the other reading it is flow. Actually flow is a good one for planning fishing trips. We have local rivers dialed by flows and it can usually tell you which part of the river to start your day at.
Keep track of flows on your daily journal and clear patterns begin to show.

i think each part of the river has a certain standard height or an average or something, maybe a certain depth for each part of the river would be 0. 0 not being the bottom but a certain height above. anything above that would be +1 metres or whatever. i dont know if this is right, and with my wording, im pretty cure i have only confused you more.

Actually it reads the Water pressure on the gauge. The higher the water pressure the high the water level will be. Which is why most of the gauges that are in a tidal flow, are drastically affected differently. Unless your reading from a manual gauge which (in my humble opinion) is alot more accurate than an electronic.
