  I'm not sure how to interpret the gauge

The flow is "twice the median", but remember that flow is exponentially related to water level. Looking at the same curve on the elevation gauge shows that the level at this time is roughly 8 inches higher than that occurring at median flow, which is easier to picture than "twice the flow" volume. If median flow this time of year is nice and quick, the present conditions should be plenty of fun but by not too extreme. Just my guess. I won't get to see it until Wednesday, or paddle it until Thursday, and it's dropping pretty quickly.
