Topic: Nishnabotna River


  
  USGS Circular 1120-A
Before the July 22 to 24 storm, the Missouri River was at or near flood stage as a result of large tributary inflows earlier in the month from the James River in North and South Dakota, the Big Sioux River in South Dakota, and the Little Sioux River in Iowa.
The peak discharge from the Missouri River caused a second and greater peak discharge at the streamflow-gaging station on the Mississippi River at St. Louis on August 1.
Downstream from the confluence, flooding on the Mississippi River was not severe because of the less-than-average discharge contributed by the Ohio River and a substantially larger channel capacity in this reach of the Mississippi River.

 The Wild Missouri   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The early river statistics were calculated from the compiled data of the U.S. General Land Office surveyors who measured down to the survey link (7.92 inches) the locations of the Missouri River banks, as well as the banks of most of the large islands, that existed in the early 19th century.
The current of the old Missouri River and all its swirling sandbars, caving banks, snags, embarras (floating-debris islands), and sawyers (bobbing trees embedded in the river) were formidable obstacles to any river traveler at that time.
The tempestuous Platte River was measured to be flowing at 8 miles per hour (twice his measurements of the Mississippi River) pushing great quantities of sand and debris all the way across the wide Missouri.

 Nishnabotna
We jumped into that dirty water an' I thought we might be able to swim in it, but we quickly discovered that we could not even begin to dog-paddle in it.
But when we got back there we sadly discovered that the sun had been out and our backs was all blistered so bad we had to lay flat on our bellies for two weeks in bed which made us sick to our stomachs an' we didn't care about nothin' anymore.
But the West Nishnabotna River is about fifteen miles west of Audubon, while the East Nishnabotna River is three miles east of Audubon.

The 1,250 residents of Hamburg were in a pitched battle Saturday against the rising Nishnabotna River, attempting to stop the flow of water over a weakened levee three miles south of the Fremont County town.
Farther up the East Nishnabotna, the water was receding at Red Oak, but the community was sending more than 5,000 sandbags and 15 volunteers to help shore up the levee on the Missouri River just south of Percival.
The Des Moines River was at 27.65 feet at Southeast 14th Street in Des Moines, or nearly 7 feet below the record crests, according to the Corps of Engineers.

After crossing the Nishnabotna river about a mile west of Griswold the road forks in four different directions, and the north branch of this road leads to the camp site.
The river is still stocked with the same kind of fish and if you are an enthusiastic angler you may be well repaid for the time spent in fishing.
Until the river was straightened a few years ago it ran by this old rock, and boats were provided so one could row across, and steps were cut in the rock so one could climb up to carve the rock or pick wild flowers on the ground above the sand rock.

In connection with the tradition in regard to the name "Nishnabotna," the name is said to have been applied originally by a party of Indians who found it so small and shallow that it could be crossed without a canoe.
This name was applied by the Indians to this stream from the earliest knowledge of the whites, as was also the name Nishnabotna to the other river mentioned.
Both are mentioned as the Indian names of these rivers by Lewis and Clark, in the journal of their expedition in 1804.
