Gauge Description:

The gauge is located at the end of the run below US501. Therefore, if the water flow is dropping rapidly the river may have fallen below minimum upstream. The Eno River is rain dependant and can only be run during periods of heavy rain.

There are bridge gauges at Pleasant Green Rd and Cole Mill Rd bridges. The Guess Rd bridge gauge no longer exists. Minimum bridge gauge reading for solo open boater is 0.5ft. There is currently no correlation between the two bridge gauges and no correlation between the bridge gauges and USGS gauges at this time.

Notes from Russ Condrey:
Cole Mill Rd to West Point on the Eno City Park
3.5' on USGS OK
4.5' on USGS / 2.0 Cole mill bridge (fun) (Nantahala like)
7.1' on USGS pushy
