Gauge Description:

Realtime flow information is now available from the power company here: 

https://www.pacificorp.com/community/recreation/water-release/weber-river.html

The USGS gauge is located above both the power plant, and irrigation diversions. Generally, one can expect about 200 to 300 cfs to be diverted from this section during the summer months. (Some of the water returns below the power plant which can make a nive play spot at the right flow and pool height combination.) The CBRFC may have a more accurate idea as to what the current diversion is on a given day.

At lower flows, such as below 550, its possible to do laps on the bend and maybe the drops, but the runout below the drops can be very bumpy.
Above 550, the runout below the drops has better coverage. If the power plant is not diverting water, 140 on the gauge is plenty for some rock slalom laps on the bend+drops.

460 - 560 cfs barely runnable-med runnable III-IV+ gauge is important or has warning Summer 2018 the powerplant is diverting again, so the bend has about 300-320 less than shown on Weber@Gateway gauge.
561 - 700 cfs barely runnable-perfect runnable IV gauge is important or has warning When the diversion is taking 300-320, then 550-560 on the gauge is a minimum for the whole run. Might have to portage 100 yards below the power plant dam.
700 -1249 cfs med runnable-a bit pushy runnable IV gauge is important or has warning Assuming diversion is 320. You can portage the first two drops, or all 3 if you want.
1250 -1799 cfs a bit pushy runnable-high runnable IV+ gauge is important or has warning Assuming diversion is 320. You can portage the first two drops, or all 3 if you want.
1800 -3000 cfs a bit pushy runnable-high runnable IV-V gauge is important or has warning V- above 2000?
