Gauge Description:

The actual boatable range is unknown to this author.   I will adjust these numbers when I can.    Considering the low gradient the boatable range is likely to be from very low to very high.  High flows increase the danger, especially at Daguerre Point Dam.  Anyone who is not absolutely confident and skilled enough to recognize the dam and take out above it, should not paddle at high flows.  

The Parks Bar gauge reflects flows at the put in, while the gauge near Marysville reflects flows near the end.
