The paddler's gauge is painted on the river right bridge piling. -3" to +3" are the normal preferred levels, especially if you are driving very far for this run. However, locals run it much lower (down to around -6") and much higher (up to around +6").
For the USGS gauges look for over 2000 CFS on the UGSG Little River at Blue Pond Gauge. These have proved very reliable as a good indicator gauges.
