I have NO idea what's going on there on the east side of the Peninsula.
The little orange triangles on the graph represent the median flow recorded over the last 81 years.
As should be clearly evident from the graph, streamflow levels are currently quite low.
(The entire Chehalis River and all its tributaries were just closed to all sport fishing by WDFW because of low water flows.)

Only way to know for sure, of course, is to actually be on the ground standing next to the river at the location of the ford.

All around the Oly Peninsula rivers systems are near record lows for this time of year, even with the small amount of rain we had in the last week or so. The Calawah River, which goes through Forks is at a record low right now. The Queets is around 600 CFS right now, which is quite low. So...this opens up some options for hikes that usually have to wait until late August or September.
