According to the USGS "Fish Creek (14315950) flow is regulated by a small diversion dam 500 ft upstream from the gage."
That diversion means the flow can quickly drop or increase by as much as 150 cfs if the diversion canal is flowing. Though large or unnatural fluctuations appear rare.
Since the gauge is downstream of this diversion, it is an accurate representation of the flow in the creek, with a couple small tributaries coming in between that gauge and the put in.
