Merced levels and trip!


Hey guys, Matthew Machu here, Jed looper at First threat… A buddy and i are heading to the Merced this weekend 27th-29th. Trying to find an old paddling buddy named Kevin who lives/lived in Midpines. Any leads? Also, wondering if anyone knows if Guage hole/wave has returned to form after the 2017 floods? It used to be awesome at all levels up to 7k cfs. I went there year-round… Tiny window of 6000-7000cfs was still epic surfing after flood fyi.
Any beta? Anyone want to join?
Looking to run ElCap to Pohono IV section and Redbud IV section.
