Gauge Description:

Visual. If the Esopus at Stony Clove is over 300 cfs, Plattekill might be running. Your best bet is to just head to the Kaaterskill and if you find it too high, the Plattekill is the next drainage over and it should be running.

This run is extremely flashy. If it is too high and it is no longer raining, it will drop to boatable levels pretty quickly.
