Thanks for your comment, Chip. I currently maintain the Escalante River gage. Much of the flow of the Escalante River upstream of town is captured in Wide Hollow Reservoir. Pine Creek enters the Escalante just upstream of the Escalante River gage. There are significant inflows between the gage and the SR-12 bridge, as Chip mentioned. Boulder Creek inflow downstream of SR-12 can double the Escalante flow. The gage is operated for water rights and hydrologic study purposes.
09337000 Pine Creek nr Escalante gage is the best indication of runoff trends in the Escalante tributaries. These tribs drain the south flank of Boulder Mountain. If considering the quality of data, look for the little red asterisks on the discharge graphs which indicate recent measurements.
