Spring River at Hardy

is a good indicator for the river.

500 cfs, for Rec School 2012 was very good. Seemed a little low at some ledges, typically several slots with adequate flow to pass, lots of good features for teaching. The gage at Mammoth Spring this same weekend was 300 cfs.

1500 cfs for Rec School 2011, has all ledges just covered, large wave at bottom of Saddlers Fall. some rocks beginning to show in a few of the wide shoal sections.

Flood stage is in 11,000 to 14,000 cfs range

much of the flow here is from Mammoth Spring and is always cold.
