Went out to Canyon Creek today (4/23/18) at what read 386 cfs on the gauge and it felt much lower than previous trips at similar flow.

Looked back at A Wet State photos where he claims flows of 300 and 250+accretion and all of his photos show more water than what we had today. So possible the gauge is reading higher than usual due to sediment moving around or data logger error.

Gage is way up at Bowman so when rain and low elevation snow is in affect there is much more accretion than now.

Yes, agreed and understood, but I'm comparing to a trip last June at 400 on the gauge after weeks of no rain that felt like double the flow of what read 386 this time. Additionally, this trip this year potentially had more accretion with water in the trail coming from the water table.
