Gauge Description:

The flow is regulated somewhat by Lost Creek Reservoir upstream. High water occurs during winter rains when flows are typically 4000-8000 cfs. Summer flows are typically around 2000 cfs.  

Very high flows can occur and are run.  Neil Nikirk reports, "I ran it years ago on a self-bailer demo trip at around 20,000 and the Oregon Club (NWRA) used to run it at Thanksgiving up to around 30,000. To tell the truth, a lot of things wash out, but there are some big hydraulics, particularly left side at Rainie... Blossom is big, but wide open. The VW rock is a big compression wave..."
