Pine Creek goes at very low flows, about as low as the Ark ever gets. At most flows below about 1200cfs the run is class IV without any severe consequneces for missing a move. From about 1200cfs through about 2000cfs the s-bend hole aka the moon pie gets sticky. Above 2000cfs the hole starts to wash and the run is a straight shot but the consequences for swiming are severe! The run is very continuous and cold.

|Perhaps the most challenging flows for this run. This is above the cut-off for commercial rafting.|
Gauge (546 sq.mi.drainage) lies very near the take-out of this run, so should quite reliably reflect actual flow in run.
