How accurate is the Price gauge?

Post by wasatchbill on Sat 11 Jun 2011, 2:39 am

Wondering why its dropping below 450, when most undammed runs north and south of there are still peaking.
Is that gauge below diversions?

Main Huntington: 860
Ferron: 824

I see that Diamond Fork and 6th water are dropping; maybe those and Price are lower elevation drainages?

Anyone interested in Price/Joes/etc this weekend?

not at all. There is no gauge bill. Just a forecast based on however many years.

The gauge is pretty accurate, I think. Ran the Price yesterday and it was quite nice, with the gauge flow (about 450) appearing accurate. 6 casual hours, one scout recommended at a blind boulder garden most of the way down, well past the point where the canyon opens up into a broad valley. No people or signs of them. Slightly buggy but camping at the put in was not bad. I think the good flow range would be slightly less to a lot more. The Green was impressive (big) with the road to Neffertiti underwater in places.

Paul, I think Bill is talking about the Price River in Price Canyon. Not the Woodside section.

Oops, my bad. Never mind. FYI, the roadside section of the Price above the mine looked quite nice both yesterday and last Sunday, about the same each day (from the highway). We were too tired and full of Mexican food to give it a go but thought about it momentarily. We checked out Willow Cr also - too low.
