Gauge Description:

Data relating gage flow measurements and floating conditions do not exist at this time. The NM State Parks guidebook to NM Whitewater says runnable above 200

USGS also operates a gage on the Pecos River near Anton Chico (#08379500). This gage may provide better estiamtes of flows for boating on the lower Pecos, especially after summer rains.

See comments under reach AW 1215 (upper Pecos River) regarding the use of snow fall amounts in spring at Wesner Springs, NM, as a planning tool for trips on the Pecos during the snow melt runoff.
