Flow Rates on the J

The flow rates on the Little Juniata river at Spruce creek can be accessed by clicking the link below. Here are some subjective opinions for different flows:

90 to 150 = Low Flow Wade anywhere, no floating possible unless you want to drag a lot.
150 to 250 = Low to Moderate Flow, Wade with a little caution Kayaks and canoes with some dragging.
250 to 350 = Moderate and very fishable flows, Wade with great caution and take a staff. Floating with only a couple of short drags.
350 to 550 = Medium/high flows. Still fishable if clear enough. Wadeable in certain well chosen places only. Easy floating of light crafts. No drift boats.
550 to 750 = Fishable if clear from shore or boat. No wading (unless you enjoy a good swim in ice water)! Some class 2.5 water. Any watercraft will do. Watch for strainers under limbs.
Over 750 CFS Forget it ! Through Streamers from the rocks if you must do something.
