I know it is nasty but watch for a spike at consluwedge park in denver some epic waves get going above 3000cfs there. Don't flip and keep the lips tight. See there if that comes up PS the street lights make it good to go at night!!

where is cherry creek hole located, I assume its somewhere on cherry creek? Also do you guys have beta on rain gauges vs stream flow amounts (like it takes 1" of rain to get confluence to 1500 cfs etc)

The Cherry Creek hole is at confluence. 50 ft up from the confluence, Cherry creek goes down a defunct boat dam that creates the hole when the water is real high.
