Level was 3-4" below the cup last night, with the SF gauge around 500cfs and dropping into the high 4s while we were there. I'm sure the rain has given it a boost since then.

Seemed like medium low. Very pleasant level. Not too bony, and Fisherman's was pretty benign. Great level for a first-D IMO.

Jay,

First let me applaud your creative thread title. When I read that on the homepage two things came to mind. First who ever made that thread get a beer on me, and second was that needs to become the standard FITW level reporting thread!

Since the Cupdate thread should be kept clean of off topic banter lets discuss the FITW levels in another thread here --> http://professorpaddle.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=9640

well there will be another Cupdate this Thursday...
I'll be heading over the pass with the intent of stopping off for soem FITWah lappage...
 
Then again, if the forecast is to be believed, the flow is going to SKYROCKET!
 
(guess we ain't having such a shabby season up there afterall- I've already clocked in several FITW laps on several different days).
 
Nice write up on the N. Frk Teanaway, BTW Jay- meant to say something...
That database is slowly getting fleshed out...

I'll be there after school (at the put-in at about 4:30) to do laps. You're right, it has been a while! Well, I look forward to boating with you on some fun runs on FITW.

Thanks guys for relaying the recent "Cupdates" I've texted to some of you. I just figure anytime I'm passing by I'm going to stop for a look, so I may as well send some data down the mountain.
 
I camped up there again last night- gotta say it's one of my favorite roadside stops. Parked the van right next to the little stone wall where I could tarp up off the side of the van, sit out in my chair, fire up the stove and monitor the Cup Rock.
 
I'm going to try for a FITWah strike tomorrow during the day or the evening or so, depending on who's into it and when they can go. I don't know- maybe by tomorrow it will be too low (looking at the graph).
 
If you've been wanting a piece of the FITWah and haven't gotten it yet this year- you'd better be ready to jump at your chance to run it. I could be wrong, but I have a feeling that as soon as it isn't too high for folks who prefer medium low or lower flows, it's gonna drop like a rock. So ELF boaters- better be quick on the draw. Very soon.

Anyone get up there yesterday? Looks like the level has been holding steady in the high 7's for the past day or two and I'm curious to hear what the levels have been like up at FITW. I'd guess medium high - but a field report would be great.

Word.

Water was flowing over the bottom of the cup today when the SF gauge was at about 670cfs.

Will everyone please upload photos (if you got them) of the FITW cup rock at any level you have seen it. I am going to make a collage for the FITW page. Please upload your photos to your own albums so I can include little photo credits. Thanks

Sorry - forgot to snap a photo tonight but the level was 1-2" below the cup. Felt like the extreme low end of medium.

As we were heading down the pass at 9:00 or so we ran into some serious rain, so if that actually hit the pass there should be a pretty healthy spike in the flows. More rain and/or some significant heat at the pass have the potential to bring the run back to life for a bit longer.
