Start with the flow at the Gunny @ GJ gauge.

Subtract Gunny @ Delta.

And subtract Uncompahgre at Delta.

If what's left is >500, it's an ELF flow.

>700 is good for sallies like me that enjoy the top 3/4 of the run but have yet (yet!) to run the takeout gorge.

>1000 and it's all on, pretty healthy from what I can tell.

I've only been paddling it for ~5 years, so take this with a grain of salt worthy of such noob forecasting. There are certainly nuances to this -- like timing when each diurnal bump hits each gauge -- but the above is a good start.

Agreed, especially given temps the next few days.

Hoping to be there Sat, but Sun more likely.

ran it today mid-day. maybe medium to medium low?

the groups that ran it yesterday said it was higher yesterday.

warming up this week -- will be back to medium quick and then higher toward the end of the week.

Looks like it's on for this weekend? Any thoughts if rain tomorrow in delta will help or hurt flows? As in cold with snow at higher elevations.

Be careful, there is a kayak pinned in there but I cannot recall the exact location. At flows we had last weekend it was completely covered and we didn't even see it. Maybe MikeC remembers the location.
