Northgate Canyon flow?

Anyone live near Northgate and have a rough idea on the current flow? The gauge has a whopping 0 (ice affected). I spoke with a friend that fishes in the area and he says it's running.

I'll check on it, too.

The Big Laramie is pretty much ice-free and rising, although way too bony to run.

The Big Laramie River starts at Chambers Lake/reservoir just off CO 14 near the head of the Poudre Canyon, and flows north.

It offers a couple mild May-early June whitewater runs (I to II+) just north of the Colorado line, with 3-4 miles of mellow meanders between. The upper run is hard to access (obscure rutted bouldery vehicle-buggering road, or a steep carry down), for about 3 miles of II rocky rapids and then easy meanders (through private land with low bridges and possible fences). Fishing so-so.

The lower run starts at the WY G&F Jelm Valley Public Fishing area and ends at Woods Landing: I-II about 3 miles, with closely-spaced rocks. At high water, canoeists get spooked on both runs (leaving their craft on the banks and hiking out). But it's fun in duckies and small-medium rafts or cats. The take-out, just above the Hwy. 10 bridge, is at the Woods Landing Resort: beer, burgers, steaks, and western atmosphere to the max.

I live in sight of the Jelm put-in, and am usually good for a shuttle (bring excellent beer).

i was up in that area this past weekend. i was told there's a big ice flow/jam somewhere down in the canyon. i have no way to verify it, but the person who told me should know.
