Been trying to figure this one out myself. The AWA page seems a bit out of date, the levels really should be report using CFS instead of Feet. The levels are sometimes reported on the Embudo Facebook page (facebook.com/groups/embudocreek/
). Also there is some commentary about level of river over the past weeks. Scroll down a way and look for Tim's post.
So far after and pulling information off of the Embudo Facebook page, I have an educated guess at correlating the levels between cfs and the old stick levels.
90 cfs = 2.7
110cfs = 2.9
140cfs = 3.1ish
I have also been told by others (old timers in boats) that 200cfs is about 3.2ish...
I stop running it around 140cfs, so I can't really comment on anything above that.
I also like to look at the Pueblo Gauge, it is above the put in, there are several tributaries that come in below it. Find the information useful to look at when the Embudo gauge is fluctuating rapidly.
