Morning is definitely where the water is according to the gauge. It looks like it might hold until the weekend, but it might not. Then again, "hold" is a relative term. I would say that 180 or so would be a good barebones minimum on this thing, but I know some people have run it down to 60cfs or some crazy nonsense like that. I cant even imagine what the non-gorged sections of the run are like at that level.

I think it peaks in the evening at the actual run, but takes a while for the water to get down through the beaver ponds to the gauge. I would call 200-250 a reasonable minimum.

The gauge shows clear creek ark peaking after midnight, with lowest flow roughly 12 hours later. So the later in the evening you run it, the higher the flow will be. The water does take a couple hours to reach the gauge a few miles downstream. For example, 225 on the gauge at 6:00 pm might really be 275 at the put in.

Anything below 300 is boat breaker.
