Stephen Strange comments:
Ed Gertler says that to paddle the last section of the South Branch and paddle the reach above Flemington, you need a minimum of 6.6' on the gauge at High Bridge. But paddling on the stretch is complicated by the pumping station at Hamden, which sometimes takes water out and puts it into Round Valley Res.
