Anyone know what the water level is like on Orange Lake up by River Styx?

Last time I rode Orange in early August the water was as high as ever. Would imagine it still is with all the rain we've had. There was plenty of water in the River Styx trail.

Went by the outfall weir on 301 the other day. Almost whitewater from the amount running over it.
