Gage Descriptions

*The gauge listed is NOT on this creek, so it is only for reference.

If the gauge shows over 1000-1500 cfs, then The Duck MIGHT be running.  The best way to gauge is from the walking bridge south of Beltline Road at Jupiter.  If you can barely squeeze under it, it's runnable.  Water over the bridge = more fun.
