Gage Descriptions

*The cited gauge is for Big Raccoon Creek, a relatively similar sized stream 12 miles away which should provide some indication of runnability. The 'minimum' is purely conjecture, and correspondence of gauge readings is not assured.

The best indicator is to watch weather patterns and rainfall totals for the area.

This is a small watershed, and will be very tough to catch with water. In general, you will want to be there within a few hours after a good rain or you will have missed it.
