Trailer Park Wave: Good at 3300-7000 cfs, prime from 4500-6000.
Gets better as it gets bigger. Hole-like when north channel of
dam is closed. Wave-like when north channel is open.
Corbin Park Wave: 17,500+ cfs
Corbin Wave gets bigger and better as the water level rises. It
can be tough to get out onto, so be ready to work. Be very care-
ful here as the whirlpools are wicked!
Dead Dog: 11,000 (tiny and shallow) - 25,000 cfs
Dangerously sticky around 20,000. When it's at its dangerous
levels, Corbin Park is in.
Zoo Wave: 2350 - 2700 cfs
Best at higher levels. Hole on surfer's left, breaking wave in
the middle, green wave on surfer's right. Take your pick and
Sullivan Hole: 2000 - 3500 cfs
Best levels for hole are 2900 - 3000. Wave-like above 3100.
Greens out at 3500. Can hit the rock below 2800.
Mini Climax: Best range is 6400 - 6800 cfs, but surf-able from
5700 - 7500.
Duplex: 6000 - 9000 cfs
Top wave (far river right) is better at the lower range,
bottom wave better at higher range.
Devil's Eyeball: High water park and play does not get any
better than this! Although it is large, it is really flushy, so
watch the corners of the wave on the surge, as they tend to
disappear. Not for the faint of heart, this feature comes in at
35,000 cfs and gets better with more water. Be sure to bring
Flour Power: 4.4 - 4.7 ft.
