Gauge Information

Gauge Description:

Scott Barnes: "The gage is after another river, and after the power plant discharge." So the gage isn't totally reliable. There's a painted gage ("Flintstone gage") at the putin; that's the one that the locals use.
The minimum level ("stage") on the USGS gage is about 4 feet.

Compliments of Mark Rollins: For a correlation between the USGS and Flintstone gauges try the following formula:
Boater's Gauge = 5/3(Gaylordsville Gauge - 4') + 1'
