Understanding river flow, height and temperature is crucial to your success when fishing streams and rivers. As you get familiar with local rivers, this information will help you know exactly what to expect before you hit the water.

With Fishbrain Pro, you can view river gauge readings from 10,000+ United States Geological Survey (USGS) monitoring stations. View up-to-date charts for river flow, gauge height, and water temperature right in the Fishbrain app, plus up to 60 days of historical readings. Simply tap a river gauge icon in the Fishbrain map to see all available information for that gauge.

To get precise readings from earlier and monitor river trends over time, drag your finger along the trendline in the chart. To understand how current conditions compare to average conditions at that station, compare the current reading to the historical average, shown as a dotted line in the chart.
