Not an expert on the flows there, but that gauge reading will be the highest I've ever run OB. It is 730 right now and I imagine by the time I get there on Sunday it will be a few hunded cfs higher. I've run it super low (don't remember the guage reading) and a couple times at what I've been told was medium. I think the gauge was in the 5-600 range then.
That guage is the total from the Slate by the campground and OBJ which enters below. I think the Slate fork contributes a little more than half, someone correct me if I'm wrong.
