Gauge Description:Minimum level listed above is for a good run with no dragging. Can be run down as low as 1.8 ft but will be very scrapy. Levels of 2-3 feet good for float fishing and inexperienced tandem canoeists. Levels of 3-5 feet considered to be ideal for whitewater paddlers, with many preferring the 3.2 to 4 foot range. Above 5 feet the rapids start to wash out.
