The Yellowstone River, How Much?
Various time series analysis techniques were used to predict the flows at the Yellowstone River during Spring runoff. These predictions were calculated using Snotel and weather data. It is important for river guides and fishing guides to have a good idea of what the flows are going to be during the runoff season while booking trips in advance. Many guides have had to cancel bookings due to unfavorable river conditions. If guides have this information, they will be able to recommend other alternatives if the conditions at the Yellowstone River are not desirable.
