Gauge Information

Gauge Description:

The gage referenced is the Oakland gage.
180 is minimum
450 is medium
600 is juicy
1000 is one heck of a ride

People also use the Friendsville gage, which ain't bad. The Friendsville gage includes contributions from Muddy Creek, which can pump up the Top Yough below Swallow Tail, but be careful: it can also include the release from the Deep Creek power plant.
