Mulberry River Levels for Kayaking, Canoeing, and Rafting:

THE MULBERRY RIVER GAUGE @ THE TURNER BEND LANDING MEASURES THE RIVER LEVEL IN 2/10s INCREMENTS, THE RIVER DIFFICULTY AS RELATES TO THAT GAUGE IS DESCRIBED AS FOLLOWS:

below .9 too low

.9- 1.2 Frequent dragging. wear good shoes.

1.2-1.3 Very low. some dragging likely

1.4-1.5 Low water floating. Good for family outing.

1.6-1.7 getting Low but floatable, Keep your trip short.

1.8-1.9 modest flow that is OK for beginners.  Too low for rafts.

2.0-2.1 Good mild water floating.

2.2-2.3 pretty good white water with lots of rock dodging. Enough water for a short raft trip.

2.4-2.5 Challenging for beginners because of the exposed rocks, good fun level.

2.6-2.9 The pools are not flowing fast, but many rapids are at their best in this range. Not a casual picnic float

3.0-3.6 Prime white water. Most rocks are covered. Big waves that can swamp canoes. Great rafting

3.7-4.0 Big fast water with almost no pools. All the rocks are covered at this level. Powerful current, Canoes beware.

4.1-4.4 You must know the river and know what you are doing. Kayak and raft rentals only if we are assured that you are skilled.

4.5-5.0 Too much water for rental. Too high to get under the low water bridge. The river exceeds its banks and flows through the trees.

*FLOODS CAN ALTER THE RIVER CHANNEL AND CAUSE MINOR CHANGES IN THE GAUGE READING COMPARED TO PAST EXPERIENCE.
