Which Gauge, and flow ranges for Miracle Wave Below Chatfield??

What are the flows that Miracle wave is in below Chatfield? Green level versus foam pile?

Also I seem to remember a gauge right below Chatfield. But I don't see it on the flows page. Which gauge is best to use for Miracle?

Also is that new playpark area upstream of Union good to go? Thanks!

Mike

Anything less than 850 you will want body Armour. I have tried it one at 750. Surfable, but nasty rock going on on river right, and the fall is sure to be onto a rock either on your can or ribs. Best day I had was at 899 this year as a newbie. I missed the 1000+ plus day.

The new Oxford play park is below Union and was not ready yet.The wave at Chatfield is pretty tame kayak wise at 900 and really even higher,but it will definitely hold you ..probably more fun on SUP....So Platte at Chatfield-Watertalk-303-831-7135 division #1station #68..Union #62 Confluence #41..
