Barker Dam Spilling?

Any beta if Barker is about to spill? Need to get my urban after work boating fix?

Yep, it has been spilling, just not much flow coming in until today. The gauge above Barker says 90 CFS currently coming in. The Orodell gauge is showing 134cfs and by looking at diamond splitter on the way home, it could right, but 4 mile seems higher then that? Not sure if anything is coming in from 4 mile?

I've been driving it daily, there is nothing added at 4 mile.

interestingly enough, there is now a gauge on 4 mile creek, at Logan mill rd. It is reading 4 cfs. might be 5.5 by the time it hits the confluence.

Buttresses is certainly runnable right now.

Ran it today and had fun--put in about a half mile below 4-mile and everything went pretty well. I'm heading up again tomorrow afternoon if anyone wants to join. Could be the world's shortest B creek season...
