USGS Gauge is located at Hwy 64 Bridge. There is a stick gauge at the Long Pool Campground which usually reads between 0.5 and 1.0 ft higher than the USGS gauge.
Based on the Long Pool gauge, 2.0 ft is generally considered the low end for this stretch and 5.0 ft is getting big.
Due to fluctuations in the readings on the USGS gauge, also check the water level page at Moore Outdoors for a current reading and correlation.
Permits are not required for this reach.

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!
