Convert Poudre Guage Rock to CFS?

So what's the formula for converting the markings on the Guage Rock near Pineview on the Poudre to CFS?

sign up for the rock report at poudrerockreport.com, and you don't have to do the conversion. you get the level sent to your inbox.

This link below is a rough swag but due to diversions between the gage rock and the cfs gage things often do not correlate well.

Are there any other diversions besides the north poudre diversion dam (the dam and tunnel between bridges and filter plant) between pineview and the gauge at canyon mouth?

This site says that the north poudre diversion dam has a max flow of 250 cfs:
Colorado-Big Thompson Project Engineering Data I sometimes subtract the cfs from the seamen res output from the gauge at canyon mouth reading for an estimate of whats going on in the canyon in between rock reports. The poudrerockreport.com website also has a nice page with all of the poudre flows in one place: Flows | Poudre Rock Report | Kayak flows for the Poudre River

you have the inflow of the North Fork that blows that number as well as the diversions as the mouth of the canyon that throw it off as well.
