Gauge Description:Visual inspection of rocky area directly under put-in bridge. If this area is runnable then run should be great. If it is scrapey then run will be scrapey. Best runs are in spring or after heavy rains.
Use Escanaba Middle Branch gauge as a rough estimate of runnability (Note: this section has been run later and at lower levels then other branches of the Escanaba.)
|MIDDLE BRANCH ESCANABA RIVER AT HUMBOLDT, MI|
|usgs-04057800||100 - 800 cfs||I-II(III)||01h15m||~ 24.3 cfs (too low)|
|Likely too low for decent whitewater run.|
Referenced gauge (on other branch of the river) has just about half the drainage as this put-in, so flow could be ~2x gauge. Correlation not assured.
Reports give the public a chance to report on river conditions throughout the country as well as log the history of a river.
