I woke up early and checked some rain gages. I was happily surprised at how much it had rained in all the right places. I got packed up and was at the Wilson Creek gage by 8:40. The Watagua was over 5,000 cfs. Wilson Creek was over 2'. I headed to Upper Creek.At Upper Creek I used the bridge as a gage as shown in the picture below; there was water.
attraction has really changed.
Scary looking rapid. It went from a class 4 to a 5+ with sieves. Click on the pics to enlarge...

|Wilson Creek gage at 3:15. I went back at around 6:00 and got a run at about 9" or 10".|
