This creek is fed entirely by the days snowmelt so the later you put on the higher the flow will be. Peak flows are at sunset or shortly after.
Before June look for minimum flows of 700 cfs or higher. Early in the season the gauges, located far downstream of the actual reach, are mostly reading snow melt from lower elevations.
