The higher readings are from spring/summer. I am looking out the window at the Eagle River, and it is at it's usual fall trickle. Fishing has been pretty good though.

I think that the Eagle gauge on AW is wrong. IT read 595 all last winter, and had the same value. That can't be right.

I use the buzz gauges for colorado, but I noticed that there are several problems on the AW site. Shoshone shows the reading below the roaring fork which is really the south canyon flow. Also the south platte confluence flow is not correct. Just observations. Anyone know whats the best way to give feedback to AW to tighten this up?
