Variable; as it is controlled by water releases from the hydroelectric dam a mile upstream from the falls. Best bet would be to check the water flow forecast. Generally speaking, 750 cfs and above is best for a decent water flow, and when releases are very high, the entire falls will be one roaring torrent, and when they are low, the falls will be reduced to a trickle on the extreme right side of the face of the falls. Rarely is the waterfall completely dry, but often during dry summers it is nothing worth photographing.
