Bulls Bridge 2 1/2 on painted gauge - canal is offline

Powerplant is off

Painted boater's gauge:  2 1/2
Housatonic at Gaylordsville gauge:   3.70  (1680 cfs)
Tenmile River gauge:  1.89  (246 cfs)
Falls Village gauge:  3.43  (1230 cfs)

This painted gauge is river-right on the concrete holding up the covered bridge (Bull's Bridge), immediately below the normal put-in.

looking upstream from the bridge at Stairway.  Mushroom hole starts to become a factor at this level (though the pillow above it still gives to the right pretty hard).  Little Niagra becomes a bit dicey, but still goes until the rocks in the center are totally covered.
