|Flow in south merced friday april 18 and saturday april 19|
was perfect (estimated 900-1100 cfs or so in the main part of the run, with large diurnal variation).
Wawona gauge peaked at about 700 friday morning and about 600 saturday morning,
alder creek is not contributing very much (50-75?); not sure where the rest of the water comes from. The first 5 miles of boulder gardens were very well padded.
Looks like the difference between the briceburg and Red Bud gauges was pretty close to the true flow.
