Too low. You already missed the Grape Creek runoff.

The gauge started to creep up 5 days ago. The gauge is located above Dewesse Reservoir near Westcliff. After the reservoir fills and starts overflowing, then look for a high reading on the gauge. I've been giving the creek's mouth a visual as I pass by on my Gorge runs. So far it's too low. If/When I see more flow coming out of Grape, I'll post it. If anyone happens to live/pass through Westcliff, maybe they could see where the reservoir level stands.

Gage says 310. You may not have missed your chance. It would definitely be quality at that level. I too was sure it was done for the season.
