To assess the influence of road building and logging on storm flow response, a pair of watersheds were studied at Caspar Creek near Fort Bragg in northern California from 1963 to 1975. Selection cutting and tractor yarding of 85‐year‐old second‐growth redwood and Douglas‐fir forest did not significantly affect large peak streamflows. The first streamflow peaks in the fall, however, were increased about 300% after logging. These early fall storms produced small peaks, which had little, if any, hydraulic consequence. The effect of logging on peak flow was best predicted by a variable representing the percentage of the area logged divided by the sequential storm number within the year.
