Gauge Description:

This gauge is located on the Middle Fork Feather at Milsap Bar which is the put-in for this run. It also includes flows from the Little North Fork of the Middle Fork Feather who's confluence is at Milsap. The gauge does not include flows added by the South Branch of the Middle Feather which enters just below putin. Flows are key on this run, the portage at Atom Bomb Falls becomes death defying above a certain flow which is perhaps 1200cfs at current gauge calibration, and certainly most sections of this run would become frightening in high flows. This gauge is also subject to significant annual fluctuations in calibration, if you are not local then ask around if flows are pushing the high end, it will not be possible to bluff your way down this run if you put on big water by mistake. As of spring 2008 several parties reported gauge readings once again had apparently changed since the previous year with parties feeling the gauge undertstated the flows, see dreamflows forums.
