Pineview Gauge

This might sound crazy, but I think the area around the Pineview Gauge might have been carved out by the flood and the gauge may be reading low. Was up there today, and the rock was reading 2.6, but for a few reasons I think it might have been higher.

There is a rock on bridges that raft guides call 3' foot rock. As the name suggests, water used to just barely pour over that rock at 3' Today water was easily pouring over that rock, like it would if it was 3.1' or 3.2' in the past. That rock used to be well out of the water at 2.6'.

The cfs gauge at canyon mouth has been reading really high all year. It was 1200 cfs today, normally when that gauge is over 1k the river is at 3' feet at least, regardless of diversions, etc.

Finally, it felt a little juicy today for 2.6'. I initially chalked it up to me not having been on anything with any water all season, but it definitely seemed higher than 2.6'.

Has anyone else noticed this or am I losing my mind.

I am in agreement here. Narrows were feeling stout this past week, and we did stevens down last night in an hour and a half. pretty fast for 2.6

all new wave train above tunnel felt huge and awesome.

Its just one more thing making me look like a pussy, now i cant even run lower at 2.5 (just yet)....

But, yes, all in all I think there might be a slight shift in how it reads.

I thought I saw your truck up there, but thought, no way! this guy was just on the Ark the day before

your getting after it bud, nice work.

oh [email protected] streetdoctor, if your dodge truck has a tire light for light load/trailer load.

we turned ours off and took the tires to 75psi and are getting 19-22mpg on the highway now.

I was thinking this myself the other day. Last year at 2' pineview had exposed rocks river right (not the slide). The other day scouting it there was plenty of flow covering those up and it was just barely above 2'. Thought I was crazy and remembering it wrong

I was up yesterday at 2.75 and it felt about the same as always except there were several places on Upper Mish that a bunch of rocks have moved around in several drops changing several lines. I think the river is still adjusting to it's new configuration.

I don't think it's changed. I've paddled it at 1.3-2.7 so far this season and I don't feel there is a difference in the Pineview rock. Rocks got moved (run out of the airplane boof in lowers is now more serious), but I doubt the gauge is reading differently.

Brian 3ft rock got moved by the flood. It was pretty tired of constantly being called 3ft rock by smelly raft guides. It has moved on to a new part of its life and would appreciate it if you just let it go.

I also agree with your bro, having kids makes you bat shit cra cra
