Gauge Description:

Dave Woten gives the beta:

With no USGS gauge on this creek, a visual is the only way to know navigability for sure. We often use Slippery Rock Creek and rain/snowfall to the North to judge if it is running. If Slippery Rock has risen a few feet or there has been a good rain and or snow melt to the North, your chances are good. There is talk of a gauge on the 28/66 bridge but I have never seen it because I put in a little downstream of the bridge.
