What are good flows on the North Fork of the Poudre?

What's a good level to run the North Fork of the Poudre? and what's a good gauge to check. Thinking about this weekend and would appreciate any beta on the upper run, put in and take out.

Thanks

I’ve heard mixed reviews on the NF of the Poudre. Lots of private property, as well as landowner issues but I don’t know much about the actual run. No idea what a good level is.

Wouldn’t mind hearing a few other opinions/beta as well.

If the gage is right I wouldn't even think about it. We ran it at 700 and it was fun. It's a little different experience than the rest of the poudre. Also, u talking about running upper or lower?? Suppose it wont matter much, neither of em are going now.

ps-go do the rustics if you haven't, they wont run too much longer.

DOH, nevermind, I see you said the the upper, your gonna need a bit more water

Is the Phateye gauge accurate for the North Fork? It reads less than 100 cfs but there is a lot more than 100 cfs coming over the spillway of Seimen Res. We'd like to get after the upper section.
