Pine View right at 1

Lapping the bottom of the bar at 1. Seen some boats in the Narrows over the last week or so. Have fun out there!

Pineview 0.9+ at 10am

If very optimistic, one might call it 1ft- as it was lapping the the bottom of the 1ft line. Despite what some folks might say, there is some fun surf out there right now (even at 0.4ft!). The Hewlett gauge reading was 2.65ft.

Thanks to all who voted yes on BOB II and helped it pass. It´s getting us that much closer to having the whitewater park downtown!

And useful tidbits for figuring flows is Canyon Mouth – N. Fork:

100cfs = ~0ft
220cfs = ~0.9ft

The flows page has reports for both (CLAFTCO on DWR for canyon mouth, CLANSECO for N.Fork)

Wow! Still cranking. Currently 51˚F, Sunny, Calm and QUIET!! Love the Canyon after Labor Day Weekend. Just a couple cars and a really fast runner- most likely training for the upcoming Equinox Half Marathon- which is an AWESOME event. It is the fastest and most scenic Half on the market. If Half’s aren’t your thing, they also have a 5-mile and they both end up at a Beer Garden. You should run the Equinox, and then join us at the 15th Annual Sustainable Living Fair in Legacy Park. That makes for a great and full day!!
