cheesman guage?

eddy flower doesn't have a guage listed on their flow page.
it sounds like this might be the year for it; denver water is predicting a very short (if any) season on bailey with a peak flow of <300.

gauges

I haven't run wildcat canyon, so take this for what its worth. But my understanding is that this gauge, south platte near lake george, would be a good indicator of the put-in flow (should be 250+ I think):

Detail Graph

And this guage, south platte above cheesman res, would be closer to the takeout flow (includes tarryall and other tribs):

USGS Real-Time Water Data for USGS 06700000 SOUTH PLATTE RIVER ABOVE CHEESMAN LAKE, CO.

hope that helps.

How do you access Chessman? Also, what is the run like? Can you portage?
What is Wildcat Cnyn?

Thanks

If most of the resevoirs are full in the south platte drainage, why would bailey run short and at 300 max. Just an inocent ?

With Dillon Res. as full as it is right now, they're going to have to move some water one way or the other, east or north. At least to me, it seems like Bailey/ Foxton will run soon, and if not, the Upper Blue will be crankin' once run-off starts up there.

they only send water from dillon to the NF S. Platte if Denver needs water. Denver does not need water.

I updated the Cheeseman Canyon run to point to the gauge ACC recommended USGS Real-Time Water Data for USGS 06700000 SOUTH PLATTE RIVER ABOVE CHEESMAN LAKE, CO. If anyone objects let me know. Here is a link to the run info - Cheesman Canyon

Anyone have a good feel for the flow levels?
Too Low: 0 - ?

hey paul, this is from an old post by tim kelly:

"As for the river, I've paddled it as low as 180 and would do that anytime though "Let's make a deal" is really marginal at that level. Water does channel nicely through SP at 180 so you can float it. Around 300 is a great level. It gets pushy above that."
