You also have to add Lake Creek into this for a correct flow. Right now Granite Gauge = 145 + CC (1

The Salida gauge can also be highly inaccurate for downriver runs because there is a lot of irrigation water pulled-out and some returned just above and below the gauging station.
When the other gauges are shut down I have found it best to take the Wellsville gauge (452) and subtract the South Ark (60) = 392 for flows in Browns down to Salida (the salida gauge reads an inaccurate 33
, and use the Wellsville gauge for Parkdale.
