A fun run with play for any ability level given fairly high water. All the rapids are down the gut, but the waves can get big. Even at 2 feet there is some nice front surfing. It can take a lot of water, I used to consider 3' on the old 31 bridge to be minimum.

The USGS Garden City gage is roughly 3.9' higher than the 31 bridge gage at the required level.
For more accurate correlations:
To get the bridge painted level from the USGS reading multiply the USGS reading by 0.75 then subtract 2.9 [Bridge = (0.75 * USGS) - 2.9 ].
To get the USGS level from the bridge painted level add 2.9 to the bridge level then multiply by 1.333 [ USGS = 1.333 * (Bridge+2.9) ].
