Gauge Information

Gauge Description:

Only runnable after extended heavy rainfall.

At the takeout slab, there is a brown rock on river left just upstream of the road crossing. Water should be up to the bottom of this rock or higher. If the two larger rocks in the roadbed on river right are exposed, the creek is probably too low.
