National Forest Closures

Although the Mosquito Fire is fully contained, portions of the Tahoe National Forest (TNF) and Eldorado National Forest (ENF) are currently closed, and will remain closed through December 31, 2022, as described in the TNF Forest Order No. 17-22-09 and ENF Forest Order No. 03-22-16 , respectively. All MFP facilities, reservoirs and recreation facilities are situated within the TNF and ENF closure areas and are therefore closed to public access.

Stream Flow Gage Data Alert

PCWA monitors and reports instream flows using numerous gages located throughout the Middle Fork American Watershed and provides real time flow data here: https://www.middleforkfun.com/flows/r2. However, it is important to note that some of PCWA's communication infrastructure was damaged by the Mosquito Fire. Therefore, some gage information is currently not being recorded and/or transmitted, and some gage data may not be accurate. Accordingly, the real time flow data presented on this website should be used with caution. PCWA is working diligently to repair damaged infrastructure and will notify the public when the MFP stream gages and communication system are fully operational.
