Near the take out on Hominy Creek Rd. Painted gauge on the abutment of the old bridge under the tall Brevard Road Bridge. Pull out in front of the old bridge to check the gauge, once you know where the gauge is you can check it from your car in a drive by!
The best levels for play are between 1 and 3 feet. Minimum is maybe .6 or .7 ?
Hominy Creek correlates well with the realtime gauge on the West Fork of the Pigeon. If the West Fork has hit 500 cfs in the last 4 or 5 hours Hominy will be running nicely, at least 1 foot probably higher.
If you think it might be too low, take a look at the rapid right bellow the gauge, this is one of the shallowest sections, if it looks good the rest of the run will be fine.
