We partially ran Dry on Feb 22, 2019, when the StreamBeam gauge on Short proper was holding at 7.8'. It had just quit raining, and the Dry gauge on the bridge was reading 6". This seemed like a great level, not too scrapey or pushy anywhere. Lots of wood down, but we were able to duck or avoid everything above the falls. Can't comment on the condition below the falls, as I had a bad line there and we had to hike out shortly after. Probably needs some chainsaw attention pretty badly.
As a side note, some of the info on this page was associated with the Dry Creek in the Sauty watershed. I've tried to remove it where possible. Thanks.
