Gauge for NSV Proving grounds...

Can anyone help me to find flows for this section. WWSR says SSV Lyons gauge. But we ran the proving grounds last night and it seemed much lower than SSV. Much of it was unrunnable due to lack of water. Any beta would be greatly appreciated...

there used to be a gauge, but it got turned off due to budget cuts. Only way to know what is flowing is to look at it, or call the folks that operate releases out of the reservoir upstream. You can guess based on the st vrain at lyons, but that includes ssv too, so its got a wide margin of error

If Buttonrock is spilling you can use the gauge above Buttonrock. But it is not spilling. I just spoke with the St Vrain Water Commissioner and he said they will be kicking the rio up to 225cfs below Buttonrock at 9:00 tonight for about a week. Of course, he said that this has nothing to do with LOG, but downstream water calls. So it looks like some water on NSV for LOG!

As always, no guarantees, but that is what I was just told.

For the love of god folks, this question comes up every year. Search 'proving grounds' and you'll find your answer. Simple.

Thanks all for the info. Very glad to hear about the release, I hope that really happens... We will be out there tomorrow to see what it's like with some water.

What's the big deal JHimick?....If I had just searched it, I wouldn't have learned of the release. I understand you can search the Buzz, but there is also value in getting current info eh? Just did that search you recommended and didn't really find that much. I did though find a post by you from 2009 wondering the same thing as me - "I would be interested in running this with you guys if there was water. Both Eddyflower and Colorado Surface Waters are showing no flow."

So there has been discussion with the water folks and there will be at least 225 cfs down the north and we have also heard rumblings of 295 over the weekend. Proving grounds at 225 is fun and obviously even better at 295 see you out there.
