By my best estimation, using online planimeter and topo maps, drainage at our listed put-in is ~6.8 square miles. By the gauge (well down the run) it has more than doubled, to 14.9 square miles.
Since 2014, there has been a USGS gauge on this run, making the remaining information listed in this "Gauge Description" quite irrelevant. Gauges on such small watersheds as this often exist for a relatively short duration for some specific data gathering, and are then unfunded (shut down). For that reason, we opt to keep the following information in place, rather than having to resurrect it at some later time.
* A decent reference is the gauge on the Trap Rock River, a larger watershed six miles south(~28sq.mi. vs. ~4.5sq.mi. at Hwy.26/41 or ~15.5sq.mi. at Five Mile Point Rd).
Minimum as set is an unsubstantiated guess based from the "10% flow" value for that stream. Correlation is not assured.
Otherwise, we recommend an on-site visual at Cliff Rd bridge.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
