Gauge Description:

The Calwah now has a realtime gauge. Flows are approximate based on only a couple of data points. You can get down the river as low as 500 cfs but expect to bump and grind a few times. High water runs are certainly possible for experienced paddlers. You can get a good visual on flows by driving the shuttle road particularly as you drive past the North Fork confluence.
