Average Flow: 82 million gallons per day (127* cubic feet per second). Only a few dozen flow measurements have been taken over the years. A measured maximum of 207 million gallons per day or a rate of 321 cfs puts it definitely into the "big spring" category, but the true measure of this spring is unknown. Seven measurements from 1993 to 1995 produced an average of 228 cfs (147 million gallons)
Recharge Area: Double Spring and nearby North Fork Springs supply area includes the upper gasconade drainage including Wolf Creek, Fry Creek, and Lick Fork. Sinkholes and losing creeks in the area also contribute.
Catch and release only: fly fishing, using only single hook, artificial flies including wet, dry, nymphs terrestrials, and streamers.
