The proper gauge for this is West Branch at Claryville: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ny/nwis/uv/?site_no=01434498&PARAmeter_cd=00065,00060
Squires says 600 is low and 1000 is "better". He also says this "isn't much fun if the water is low".
The gage is at the confluence of the East Branch and West Branch; the the West Branch flow might be about half of what is shown.
Permits are not required for this reach.
Take out at the Frost Valley Road/ West Branch Road bridge in Claryville.
Go up Frost Valley Road and Put In near the YMCA camp
