Salt river runoff

Dazed amazed and cornfused. One river flow web site "American Rivers"has the Salt running at 1030, "all about rivers" has it at 2000. Anyone have any insight into this? Also insight as to the flows for the next two weeks? Thanks

Chrysotile

The gauge for chrysotile is the one you want to watch. It's 1060 right now.

roos

The gauge at Roosevelt is the takeout gauge. I use that gauge. Just after the putin a couple big streams enter the salt and add a ton to the flow during run off. Canon creek is the other big drainage that enters the Salt river right, after the day stretch. It also adds more water.
I believe that the Roosevelt gauge more accurately represents the h2o in the Multi day Salt run. Atom...

Here's a little video from Sunday. We had around 900 cfs. It was 92 today in Phoenix and very warm all over the state so the flow will come up.
