USGS - science for a changing world

Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see

Live Webcam Operation

Eel River at Fernbridge, CA (USGS Streamgage 11479560)

This webcam is located at the USGS stream-gaging station on EEL RIVER AT FERNBRIDGE. This station provides continuous monitoring of river stage. The webcam provides valuable information to the National Weather Service, first-responders, and area residents to evaluate real-time conditions in the creek channel during storms. The visual record of flooding also provides valuable research data for the USGS.

Our thanks to Humboldt Creamery, Fernbridge, CA, for their support in the location and installation of this webcam.
