The hardest part to float at low water is the stretch above any major trib ( Cibecue is the first) so Chrysotile is best to judge what's needed at the start. If you are more concerned about how big the rapids might be use Roosevelt. With the lack of snowpack this year I'd be more concerned with low water. Canyon Creek is 16 miles from the normal launch.

I believe that the Roosevelt gauge more accurately represents the h2o in the Multi day Salt run. Atom...
