Hey Beth!

The creek is still excitingly high. But supposedly there's a Tyrol downstream from the normal wade. I haven't seen it though. You could try PMing folks who've ticked sport park routes recently and ask them about the crossing. Have fun!

You can always check https://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/River/detail/id/364/#tab-flow

For reference, it was ~400 CFS on Sunday and we didn't quite want to cross @ Castle Rock, but I assume Sport Park has a wider crossing. And right now it's down to 300 CFS.

I like this website- probably the same gauge out at 75th. The best gauge washed out in the big flood.

The current flow is way down over the last two days. From 300 down to 140.

Might not be so bad crossing.

There's a Tyrolean line downstream from the usual wading spot -- it's just somewhat hidden.

Actually, this is the gauge you should be looking at: http://www.dwr.state.co.us/SurfaceWater/data/detail_graph.aspx?ID=BOCOROCO&MTYPE=DISCHRG

Thanks for this url. It looks even better than the prior, washed away gauge. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
