March 1, 2012 ran from E. Furnace down to Buckton at 5.01 on the website gauge and 460 cfs. A great level that at the lower section offers too many options that can end in strainers. There was one notable strainer in the bypass channel around the dam that may be a problem at higher flows. A great fun run at this level though. Mike Aronoff
Ran this on 4/14 @ 800 cfm. It was a great run with minimal blockage. Saw it at 1400 one day earlier and was too high to safely navigate through the trees. Red hole was a fun drop. You'll know when you hit it then quickly eddy to river left and look upstream. Someone has written its name on the rocks. Overall fun for a beginner/intermediate run.
this creak is great for beginners and novices i find it to be more of a challenge when water levels are lower. you can run the creek down to about 60cfm and i have run it as high as 1800cfm. watch out for strainers. my brothers and I do our best to keep a clean path down the creek but new strainers pop up all the time. I have only been 4 times this year.
concur with advice to use left channel at the tree blockage (referred to as beaver dam by paddlers I was with). Looked at left channel, leader in group chose to go right instead, portage was very difficult and lonnngggg through downed trees and vegetation (good 1/8 mile!); once back in main flow, could see upstream where left channel came back into main flow, unobstructed after it rejoined the flow.
Fun 2-3 run at 5 ft on the online gauge. Wouldn't want to do it any lower.
1 mandatory portage due to major Beaver work. You'll know it when you see it, there's no surprise.
Stop in Waterlick Grocery for a snack, paddling partner, rental or a shuttle, if passage is running, Gooney usually is as well. Two fun creeks in one day.
USGS gauge is online. On 4/17/07 it was 9" on the route 55 bridge, about 4.7' / 290 cfs USGS.

Passage is reportedly getting its own on-line gauge soon, reporting from Buckton at the Rt. 55 bridge. Once the gauge starts reporting it will be linked here. The streamkeeper is guessing around 150 cfs on the gauge will be about boating zero.
The gauge above is a a correlating gauge and should be viewed as such. The Gooney is one watershed to the east of the Passage watershed. The minimum of 2.3 is based on limited observations and may need adjustment later.
There is a painted gauge at the Route 55 bridge in Waterlick on the upstream river left side. A level of 1-3 feet makes for a good run. Six inches is scapey, and it can be run down to zero.
Look at the Camp Roosevelt and Detrick rain gauges.
