Real-time and archival stage record for the Torrey Creek stream gage, operated by the Wind River Mountain Research Lab, located at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp above Trail Lake, near Dubois, Wyoming.

Wind River Mountain Research Lab Stream Gage #1

Stage data are recorded every 15 minutes (barring technical difficulties) and converted to volumetric discharge rates using a Bayesian power-law rating curve developed from in-situ streamflow measurements. Daily and 15-minute records are available upon reasonable request.
