Cataract gage?

Cant seem to find a real time water gage for Cat or below the confluence.

To the best of my knowledge there isn't one. I've always added the Green River @ Green River and Colorado above Delores (with the D's volume added when applicable) and gone with that. There aren't really any significant drainages down river of those two gauges (Delores exepted)...

Here's a current flow and short-term forecast for Cataract. Not sure from where or how they derived the flows but supposedly there's a Cataract "station."

Normally I'd just add Green River and Colo. at Cisco.

Andy -- the cbrfc "gage" and, more importantly, forecast is the Lag-K routed observed flow from Colo Cisco, and Green- Green RV, Ut flows. (So if there are short duration bumps in the hydrograph this is reflected in the forecast rather to account for timing) It also includes the San Rafael when it's pumping, and is used by the NPS to determine when and if they delpoy below B.D III.
