Gauge Description:

*The cited 'reference' gauge (on Dutch Creek) should provide decent correlation, as its headwaters are south of Sugar's. Also look for the Petit Jean near Booneville to be going big as well. (however this gauge reacts slow as it is well down on the watershed.


There is a painted gauge on the downstream side of the middle bridge support at the Jack Creek Rec Area bridge.

Minimum = 1 foot

Optimum = 1.5 to 2 feet

High = >3 feet
