The cfs correlation gauge with WF Cow Creek is still getting dialed in. Use as a rough estimate. It is likely Graves could be run a bit higher, or a bit lower on this gauge correlation.
I'd recommend running it on the lower end your first time down.
There is also a foot gauge on the river right side of the I5 bridge viewable from Frontage Road. That gauge has also not been dialed in yet so share info if you get it.
This is a steep, bouldery run. Scout often.
Dec 27-28, 2014: We ran the bottom half with the Rogue@Grants pass running 9,000 cfs, and WF Cow running about 500 cfs. Everything went but could have used more water, especially for some of the larger rapids. There were no wood portages in the part we ran.

This week, Oregon House Bill 2835 re-passed the Oregon House on a 52-7 vote. Having earlier cleared the Senate, the bill now awaits a signature from the Governor to be signed into law. For decades, opportunities to protect and improve the ability of the public to access and legally use waterways for recreation have seen minimal progress, while efforts to severely limit access have been a consistent threat. Oregon House Bill 2835 is a pivotal piece of legislation in Oregon, and the first proactive waterway access bill in recent history to have made it through the state legislature.
