OK, so this will not be new news to some, but a few other folks had said that limp wrist is in when garcia is above 600. That may be some folks who huck all the time, but I went scouting early this morning it was too low for my taste.   There was nice aeration on right/center, but it was small and the boof flake on left would make it hard to cut right during the drop. It maybe possible to be done, but probably not by me on my first run here. I took pictures if anyone cares. So... here's hoping another big storm comes through and the drainage spikes, but I'm a little doubtful until the fall.

look for 900 - 1000 on the gauge. i don't know specifics but my guess is they divert up to about 500cfs just above the falls.

so if the gauge is 600 you may have ~100 at the falls. if the gauge is 900 you have ~400 at the falls.

it will run this spring for sure. couple hot days and it will be cranking. still snowing up high and rain on snow will get it going too.

I doubt it will be in. Look for 3000 to 7000. On the middle middle. Have to catch it on a spike or drop
