Paulh, sorry for threadjacking but we used to have more gauges for the ark. These were only necessary in the early season before they turn on the parkdale gauge. From what I hear from people that paddled it Wed, it is actually closer to 500. Any chance of adding the other gauge in the early season or all year or maybe just map parkdale to it while it is turned off the winter?

GH, I changed the Royal Gorge run gauge to use the ARKANSAS RIVER AT CANYON CITY (ARKCANCO) gauge which now displays 515 cfs.

If you would prefer, I can change the Pinnacle Rock run gauge to use this gauge instead of Royal Gorge run. Let me know.

Actually paulh that looks great. Thank you for researching. I think that will definitely reflect what it is going on. Forget my PM since its says Royal Gorge and the location says Canon City. That is perfect.
