Vallecito Flows

Would personally recomend 2.2 when you put in on the new gauge for your first run down it. A little softer is a little nicer for me. Too a point, the bigger the better in there The majority of us locally cut it off at about 2.1, 2.0. Its gettin pretty freakin low for my taste. Some jonsers go mank down it with 1.7-8 but not a recommended first time flow.

Warren,
Well, well, well. I was going to invite you up to BV for a Lake Creek session, but since I see you have become a "high-water snob" I will refrain from asking you.

Oh, BTW, the second hole on the Brains is much easier to skirt at this level.

See you around
Mark

Is the foot gauge the USGS one that comes up from the buzz or is it a visual only gauge?

USGS

Definitely use the USGS as a basis but look at its trends. You may want to take a look at the visual gauge when you get there if you can for some real time data as it changes so rapidly. It is a USGS staff placed in the water after you pass through the horse fence. You will see a large fallen tree spanning Falls Creek off to the right just after you pass through the fence. Cross it and follow the trail down to creek level.
