The question often asked is ?
    How is the river?  we never seem to be able to answer it so we hope the pictures following will give you the information you need.  The gage shows the river movement in the past month.  Any height from almost nothing to 11 feet is great for canoes.  The fossil  hunters seem to prefer lower as better because more of the ground is available for hunting fossils.  The pictures are all taken for the same place so if you are a regular you can refer to the picture or the gage to know what it is like on your perfect day.
