To get flow information check Lake Creek above Twin Lakes Reservoir, from the Colorado DWR.
Lake Creek can be run at many different levels. For the Lower Gorge and Nimby you will probably want 500 cfs or less, although everything has been run at much higher flows. Also, Lake Creek has long stretches of IV that would be a lot of fun with more water. Most of the water in Lake Creek is diverted from the Roaring Fork River on the other side of Independence Pass.
