Area South Fork
Topic Temperature: Seasonal Maxima for Main/South Fork Watershed Fahrenheit
Caption:  The chart above shows the maximum water temperature in Fahrenheit for all automated temperature probes placed in the South Fork Gualala River from 1994 to 2001. Station location codes are lpw and bpw = Little and Big Pepperwood creeks, sf = South Fork Gualala River, gua = mainstem Gualala and mck = McKenzie Creek. Readings range from fully functional at station gh250 and some Big Pepperwood Creek sites; to moderately stressful for salmonids other reaches of Big Pepperwood, to lethal (>75 F) in the mainstem Gualala, South Fork, and McKenzie Creek. One time maximum temperatures do not provide information on duration of stress and so are not definitive for gauging suitability for salmonids. See Info Links for more information. Data provided by Gualala Redwoods, Inc. and the Gualala River Watershed Council.
