Has anybody gotten a visual on the put in? Is there enough to float or is most of the water coming in from side creeks below the gauge? With just a little more water she could open up!

I have not seen what the canyon the Bailey run is in looks like, but if there are a lot of small mountain streams/tributaries that flow or can flow into it I would say that you can be optimistic about water.

The Deckers run is showing 500, the Foxton 225. These don't add up to the 1520 that Waterton is crankin' right now. We did a shorter Deckers run last night after work and I can tell you that there is WAY MORE than 500 in there. There were tributaries and small streams flowing into that thing all over the place and parts of it were ragin'.

Even if the Deckers run was all the way up to 900ish, which was definitely possible last night, that still leaves over 500 for the North Fork. I am not sure if all of that water is coming into the North below Bailey or not, but its at the confluence to say the least.

Happy Boatin'

There are a couple of guages on the north fork. The pine guage which reads in the 200's is below the run. The bailey gauge is close to the put in and it reads 120ish. Very low. I hit a bunch of rocks floating in at 250 on the upper guage. Previous reports on the buzz were a min of 180, with most wanting over 200. So a 100+ cfs is coming into bailey from the side creeks. The drops are probably getting close to good if not already. The paddle in probably sucks right now unless you have wheels on your boat. Watch the bailey gauge and wait til it gets up a bit.

The DWR gauge at Bailey says 122cfs. Have fun on the paddle in.
