Gage Descriptions

The USGS gauge is a crude indicator for runnability of this small creek. Better to look for 2" of rain within 24 hours at the Mill Creek rain gage and look for a sharp rise in the E Fork Black River. A paddler’s gauge is on the Hwy E bridge at the take-out. The gauge is new (3/16/2005) so the minimum level is uncertain ... maybe 2.0 ft. However, the best way to gauge the minimum is to scope the first drop for enough water to do the river-right boof to miss the undercut/pin on the left.
