Gauge Description:A spray painted staff gage (thanks Rob!) is located at the take-out on Hwy 129 at the Yellow Creek & Cheoah confluence. It is upstream on river left of the culvert -- best seen from upstream river right. 0" is the base of the culvert. It was running 5" when painted, so the gage actually starts at 6" and caps out at 5ft. The marks are in 2" increments.
At this time our best guess for reading the gage is as follows:
1 foot: bare minimum
1.2 : nice low
1.4 : med
1.6 and up: high
Please help dial this gage in: report your runs!
