Gauge Description:

This things takes a whole lot of water to bring it up. The day we did it, Chattooga hit 5 feet, French Broad at Rosman hit 3000 cfs, and the Cullasaja went to 10 feet. Eastatoe was still kinda scrappy.

If you can paddle under the right channel at the put-in bridge without hitting anything then the level should be adequate.
