So, does All Good mean the river flipped back in the other channel above Caddis Flats ? Or the new channel is OK now ?

A couple weeks ago they had signage at all the put ins about a river wide log jam above caddis, below placerville. With rising water that may have changed. I haven't heard anything either way.

Those signs about the closure below Caddis were from a few seasons ago. Whitey wrapped a raft on the large strainer and shifted the log and the entire river to the left when they pulled the boat off. There is an easy line on the right though Strainerville. Read and run.

The gauge for the San Miguel is not accurate. It is currently reading 1,200 cfs, but it is really at about 2,000 cfs. It seems like whenever our river gets near 2,000 the gauge breaks down.

The San Miguel is at a great level. Be safe and heads up for wood.

actually the guage was recently adjusted and corrected. the river is running consistent with the guage reading now, roughly 1300 cfs.
