Default North Ram River Levels

Hey guys and gals, looking to do a north Ram trip end of June and I'm curious of what the water level is like right now? Anyone been out there yet??

For the last 5+ years I've fished the N Ram at least two times a year. Being a bite on the older side I plan my trips based upon water level. I use Alberta Rivers app. Going over my notes it says 1.14m depth too high for fishing. Last year's trip the water level was below 1m and the river, according to my notes , was wadeable. For me the preferred level is usually Aug.

Thanks a lot my friend! As far as I can tell with the app, the water levels are already at .90 metres. Guess it's ready to rock.

According to the app, the levels are well below the average on most of the flowing water. This could be the earliest runoff in years.

With these water levels, would that be the case with other rivers and creeks in the same area? Clearwater river and other smaller creeks?

with virtually no runoff, i suspect yes. by July we'll probably be looking at water temps that could be dangerous to the trout.
Many rivers have been fully or partly closed under these circumstances in the past.
