Clear Creek Highest Flow

Does anyone know what is the highest recorded flow on clear creek in Golden?

Today looks to be the highest that you can query on the gauge page.

I think Colorado Rivers and Creeks has a picture of the narrows at 3000 cfs. I could be wrong or perhaps the caption on the picture is wrong or exaggerated. Will have to look when I get home.

2370 cfs peak flow in 1983 at golden gauge.

Last night got up to 1900+. I think we are going to beat the record, prob this week. 25 inches swe still at Loveland snotel which is a full average snowpack. Boom!

The CRC photo says 2000. It looks a lot more filled in/flatter at Mr. Bill than 1600 yesterday. Right now the wall at Mr. Bill is intimidating but does allow passage on the far right.
