Best way to gauge Lower North St. Vrain flows?

Does someone know the best way to gauge the flows for Lower NSV? Is the NSV near Lyons or NSV above Buttonrock gauge accurate for the runs around Applewood bridge? Or do you have to figure out the flow some other way?

Thanks for the beta!

North St Vrain near Lyons is what you are looking for. It gauges the runs from Button Rock to above the SSV confluence.

I ran the section from the bridge above rd80 to Apple Valley last weekend around 130cfs. That would be a min. Much more fun above 200.
From Apple Valley down needs at least 150cfs.
