Check Dreamflows.com for the Kings River at Rogers Crossing upstream of the North Fork. See also the Army Corp Pine Flat hourly report or CDEC: Kings Near Trimmer, both of which show flow below the North Fork Kings, plus other information.
High flows of over 20,000 cfs occur every few years and create awesome wave trains. However the difficulty and seriousness of this section is much greater at such flows. The class is at least 4+ at high flows. On the low end most rafters quit boating around 1,000 cfs, but kayakers can scrape down quite a bit lower.
Check these graphs of Snowpack information for the Sierra. Realtime raingauge and temperature information is available for Cedar Grove and Big Meadows on the South Fork Kings, for Balch Camp and Fence Meadow, on the North Fork Kings
