03325500 Mississinewa River near Ridgeville

A person from SBS has indicated that 30 cubic feet per second or 2.33 ft. on the Ridgeville gauge could be considered a lower bound of fun paddling on the upper stretches of the river. At this level you may have to pull accross a sand bar or two.

This person keeps track of the river by looking at a tree outside of his location. We are working on getting that translated into gauging station information.

Another kayaker said that even at 2.63 ft on the Ridgeville gauge the river is pretty slow and sluggish, and canoes would probably require some pulling.
