I've done some gauge geek work on predicting flows for Bear Creek at Morrison. Used Roy's equation to convert stage to flow. Downloaded stage data, and then used forecasting decline methods to predict flows into the future. For hydro-geek folks... fluid flow through porous media (subsurface runoff) follows a decline that can be estimated as a straight line on a semi-log chart.
I've taken a stab at predicting what flows will be (noted on the chart)
Today: 900 after work, stompy flows, major carnage potential
Tomorrow: 600 mid day, 500 after work, money flows
Friday: 400 dropping to 300 through the day. Still great flows, less stompy, but action.
Saturday: mid to low 200's, low water, but higher than the 150ish bear gets regularly run at.
I will try to update these charts daily to help predict when bear will be in. I know lots of folks, myself included, are trying to figure out when bear will drop in.
