Million dollar question: has it peaked or is it still coming up?

it has peaked based on last night's rain, but more is forecast. If it spikes up again (over 200), I'm in for dawn patrol tomorrow.

If it gets over 180 I am taking my mank boat out there...any time of day. I think there is a good chance it will be running tomorrow morning and into Saturday with all the rain forecasted.
Al, I am game for dawn patrol.

Bear creek! Keeping my fingers crossed. Spike has peaked for now, but she is primed. Forecast looks like good chance of rain this afternoon, tonight and tomorrow... Might be enough...

I'll be there tomorrow if its up, and I don't need as much as others. If its over 140, I'll be down there. I'll probably go lap no fun falls regardless of flow.

Somebody call Gary E and tell him to bring the eggs.

I'll proudly display my mank badge & admit I did it last year (post-rain) at about 120. I had fun, honestly. Should have brought my boat to work today. Damn.

Don't forget that the NIMBY rapid (first dog-leg drop bordered by private property) now has a low stone bridge right at the edge of the drop. The wood form was high enough for clearance at 120, but it wasn't complete yet. https://www.mountainbuzz.com/forums/f...pid-24109.html Be heads up.

I'm down for some morning laps if it stays up. Forecast looks like it might be too cold...7-Day Forecast for Latitude 39.62N and Longitude 105.32W (Elev. 7236 ft)

Anybody else think that chart has been suspiciously flat since it "peaked"? Looking at the tabular data, shows that it's been pegged at *exactly* 132 cfs since 7:15 this AM.

Real streamflow data doesn't often look like that in my experience. Judging by the trajectory of the curve before it hit 132 and the current radar, I'm thinking it could be quite a bit higher than that...

I don't have my boat with me either, but could probably get there with it by 5:30 if anybody wants to give 'er...
