Check water conditions before you go by heading to the US Geologic Survey Stream Gauge.
Here are some helpful tips to understand the cubic feet per second (cf/s) and what that looks like on this section of the River Raisin. If the discharge or instantaneous value is:
- 25 cf/s or less, expect to get out and walk through a few sections due to low water
- 30 cf/s to 90 cf/s, expect a gentle float with plenty of water to enjoy your paddle
- 110 cf/s or higher, reevaluate paddling the river section based on your skill.
