Gauge Description:

Runnable range is estimated to be 600-4000.   However, flows above 2000 may be more serious than most want to contend with.   Brasuell reports that flows in the 600 to 800 range are very low but still fun and mostly class 4ish.   These flow numbers will be updated as we get more information. 

Flows occur during winter and spring spills and during scheduled boating releases on weekends in May of most years.
