When is the low and high tide in the mountains?
That’s a tricky question. For the most part, the tide is controlled by the amount of rainfall. Rain can provide high water flows even in September. The snow melting on the mountains give a lot of water when it is warn and/or rain. A tip for wading is that if it does not rain, it is usually lower water levels in the streams in the morning because the snow melting decreases during the nights.
