The Buffalo Creek gauge has changed recently. I would estimate this section is not running until
the gauge at Murat reads over 4.0 feet. There is a concrete driveway that crosses the creek about
halfway up from the fire station to the suggested put-in. If that driveway has water flowing over
it you should be able to get down. If not flowing over, forget about it and go downstream for more

A good level is 3.5 to 4.0 on the Buffalo creek Murat gage for the upper section. A good put in is
at the bridge that crosses over the creek at the Colliers Presbyterian, if the water is over the
concrete footers on the bridge your good to go! Kurt

We ran the lower part of Colliers Creek from Effinger Fire Department on down to the Murat bridge
on Buffalo Creek on 2/2/13. There is now a gauge at the Murat Bridge on Buffalo that can be found
on the Virginia i-flows website, but it was not reporting today. I would say that the current use
of the Maury flow near Buena Vista is not a very good indicator of the level in Colliers Creek. It
was very bumpy and took considerable effort to find a line that worked until Buffalo Creek merged
in. Hope to run the upper part soon once we've gotten some more rain.
