The only other way to check is go to the usgs site below the first flow chart on the flows section of Mtn buzz. Look for plateau creek first at collbran then at the cameo gauge, subtract the two. That should give you buzzard plus other tribs in that area, but buzzard should be pumping most of it. I havent heard of anyone running it yet this year. There just isn't the snowpack up there that we had last year, but the temps have been cooler recently. Otherwise its all visual. Find someone who lives in Collbran and ask them what the creek looks like.
