Determining Big T flows?

I've heard there can be a good bit more water flowing down the Big T than is shown in the Big T gauge (the one on Eddy Flower), especially in the run below Drake. Is that true? Is this a better gauge to look at? http://www.dwr.state.co.us/SurfaceWater/data/detail_graph.aspx?ID=BTCANYCO&MTYPE=DISCHRG

Thanks.

For the section below Drake, I think you can add in the N. Fork flows. The canyon mouth gauge may or may not be accurate depending on where and how much they are diverting.

Thanks guys. How low is too low for the run below Drake? The flow up top is listed as 313 cfs, the NF adds 91 cfs, but there's only 334 cfs showing on the gauge labelled "at the canyon mouth near Drake." (I didn't know that Drake was near the canyon mouth?) So there's obviously some water being removed. Is this happening at the Idlewilde damn in the middle of the run?

The stuff below the damn is great! I would defiantly run it at 330 on the gauge. Especially if you're getting another 91 CFS in the river below that damn.
