    Bathymetric and topographic data on the mainstem Nooksack River, Whatcom County, Washington were collected in the fall of as part of a study on sediment transport and channel change. Bathymetric data was collected from the river's mouth to river mile (RM) 28, near Nugent's Corner. Topographic data is available from RM 17, near the town of Lynden, to RM 37, near the confluence of . The Nooksack River watershed is habitat for nine species of indigenous salmonids. Salmon runs in the Nooksack River are already severely depleted. While exact counts are not available, they are estimated to be between 2% and 8% of runs during the late ’s.

      Friday’s focus was at Ferndale, where the Nooksack hit minor flood stage of 18 feet early Friday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey’s online site – the river crested about noon just.
