I can take an educated guess based on the Roubideau gauge and weather forecast. That gauge seems to be correlating reasonably well with the flow on Escalante. I was there Sat & Sun last weekend and there was a sim weather pattern. It was running high all week and then cool weather on Friday made it drop down to a medium-high flow on Sat - the gauge was in the 600s. Saturday was warm and it made a big jump into high flows for Sunday.

It's supposed to be cool there today and I think it will drop to a medium flow on Sat, and perhaps slightly higher on Sunday, but probably not much as temps are supposed to stay moderate. You probably know highest flows are in the morning and it drops quite a bit in the evening. That's my guess. Not sure how much snow pack is left out there either.

It was hot as hell on tuesday and it was running higher than I've ever seen it (I've now said that after every single trip there this year). you could boof straight off the middle of esca falls. Not sure about this weather.
