Poudre Flows

One should note that the flows on Eddy Flower on the Poudre are for both the Main stem and the North Fork. Right now the North Fork is contributing a significant amount of water out of Seaman res. The Filter plant run has all the water on the flow. However everything above is only running about 1' on the rock. So still low water on the Poudre except for Filter plant

Yes - two good flows to watch are the Main Stem (near the canyon mouth), which will fluctuate some with canal diversions, and the North Fork. Because of the diversions above the gauge on the Main Stem, the Rock Report (poudrerockreport.com) is the most reliable in general. Here are the direct links to the Main Stem and North Fork gauges if anyone's interested:

That gauge for N. Fork Poudre is above Seaman reservoir, which is not a valid flow for the confluence of the main stem and N. Fork. The gauge you want to look at for the N. Fork is this one:

If you subtract that flow from the [email protected] mouth, you get a decent estimate of whats coming down the mainstem

has anyone seen the rock today? We were planning on going up around 5. the rock report yesterday said it was 1 foot. From the flows on the Eddyflower it seemed like it jumped a lot and is now falling. Is that just the N. Fork or is it the main flow? We don't really want to go up if it is under a foot.

Looks like it was the N. Fork. I'm guessing its still around 1 foot. We were up there yesterday. Whiteline was good. Middle/Lower Narrows were good, but shallow. Bridges was really scrapey.

I wasn't aware of the gauge below Seaman - yes, a much better one to use to estimate Main Stem flows. Thanks for the correction and new link (though I'd probably still use the Gauge at Livermore for running the lower NF).

FYI 1 ft. on the rock @ 7:00 pm. A couple of boaters were doing bony laps on Pineview.
