Salt at 2500?

Eddy Flower has the Salt at 2500. If correct, how long does the wilderness run usually hold water? Does the car need to be loaded and ready to go whenever the flow gets good this time of year?

Thanks for any info.

My understanding is that at this time of year, you have to get it and get it quick. So yes, keep the car loaded.

Dave, your data is wrong. There may have been a spike or a problem with the guage, but go to the site and call up tabular flow data (not the graph) for the last 7 days, and it hasn't gotten above 2,200 at the put-in.
USGS Real-Time Water Data for USGS 09497500 SALT RIVER NEAR CHRYSOTILE, AZ.

If you do the same at the takeout guage,

it hasn't gotten above 2,800 in the past 7 days. You're getting everybody all excited for nothing. Let's hope that snowpack stays up there for a while yet.

I agree w/ Wyo, the spike is an anomoly. It did rain in Showlow and the river went up to around 2200ish. It snowed in the White Mountains but not much. We need more snow!
