Will someone please unlock the mysteries of the South Fork of the South Platte for me? There seems to be inconsistent information on which gauge to use for Cheeseman. There's South Platte Near Lake George:
and South Platte River above Cheeseman Lake:
USGS Current Conditions for USGS 06700000 SOUTH PLATTE RIVER ABOVE CHEESMAN LAKE, CO.
The gauge "near Lake George" appears to be below 11 mile res, and above Lake George. That one looks like a great indicator for the 11 mile run, but I'm less sure about the Wildcat canyon run, as Lake George sits in between it and the run. However, I see there are several tributaries coming in above Cheeseman Lake. But right now there's 110 cfs more in the lower gauge - maybe there's a rain effect going on right now? I'm guessing this lower gauge is not used (i.e. in the WWSR) for the run because you have inflows between the run itself and the gauge?
Anyway, what's the most accurate gauge for the run and how accurate is it?
