        Can anyone provide info on how to determine when Marble Creek becomes runnable?

          American whitewater has this on their flow info. I’d say it’s pretty accurate.

          Look for 1′ of rain within 6 hours at the Glover rain gage.
          A paddler’s gauge is on the Hwy E bridge at the put-in. The gauge is new (12/27/2005) so the minimum is not known, maybe 2.0 ft(?). The gauge has yet to be correlated with any of the USGS gauges but a crude indicator of runnability is for the St. Francis to be greater than 5 feet.

            Yes, Roselle gauge should be greater than 5.0 feet. You can drive to Marble where it crosses Hwy E and park in parking lot. TAKE BINOCOLAURS to read painted gauge on downstream pillar river left.
