Gauge Description:

GAUGE: Flows between about 800 and 1000 are considered a good moderate level. You can run the river lower but down below about 700 cfs the pin potential increases and several drops start to become pretty trashy. The river has been run higher too, but normally by veterans who know the lines and are familiar with the drops.
