JUMP RIVER AT SHELDON, WI
usgs-05362000 525 - 3525 cfs I-II 97d05h12m ~ 171 cfs (too low)
gauge class Almost certainly too low for any reasonable whitewater (likely < 150 cfs). (Flatwater may be paddled at nearly any listed flow.)

0 - 265 cfs extremely Low-somewhat Low I-II gauge is important or has warning Almost certainly too low for any reasonable whitewater (likely < 150 cfs). (Flatwater may be paddled at nearly any listed flow.)
265 - 525 cfs somewhat Low-barely Low II gauge is important or has warning Likely low flows (perhaps 150-300 cfs). (Possibly E.L.F. level - Extreme Low Flow run.)
525 -1060 cfs barely runnable-med runnable I-II gauge is important or has warning Possibly low to moderate flows (300-600 cfs). (Rapids likely to still be very technical/rocky.)
1060 -1760 cfs med runnable-a bit pushy runnable II(III) gauge is important or has warning Likely moderate boatable flows (perhaps 600 - 1000 cfs). (Rapids should be good, with one or two holes possibly getting a bit sticky!)
1760 -3525 cfs a bit pushy runnable-high runnable II-III gauge is important or has warning Likely moderate-to-high flows (1000-2000 cfs). Getting big and pushy. (Expect some spots to get 'keepy'!)
3525 -7050 cfs somewhat High-somewhat High III+ gauge is important or has warning Undeniably high flows (likely 2000-4000 cfs). Caution is urged. Likely huge, pushy wave-train.
7050 -9999 cfs barely High-extremely High I-II gauge is important or has warning Unusually high flows (likely exceeds 4000 cfs). Caution is urged; River is in flood. Could be major 'big water' run for experienced boaters but rapids are shor
