The proper gauge for this is West Branch at Claryville:,00060 Squires says 600 is low and 1000 is "better". He also says this "isn't much fun if the water is low".

Gage Descriptions

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.

Directions Description

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
