Are there any class IIIs on the blue at all? Especially this time of year? On the lower (below Green Mtn.) besides the sharp rocks pointing up that are called wiers, is there anything I would need to worry about on that section?
What about between green mtn. and dillon? Any major obstacles that a smaller raft would need to worry about?
Seems like the Blue is perfect for small rafts, mellow and not many rapids at all, but I'd like to hear from people that have actually been down it. The main thing I'm worried about is large drops over rocks (more than 12-24 inch drops I'd say) that you can't get around and keeper hydraulics, anything like those on these sections?
I've been wanting to hit the blue below green mtn. in my raft, it's only an 8ft raft so some of the shallows shouldn't be as bad for me as it is for you 15 footers, plus it's easy for me to cheat as it's a kickboat
Personally, I'll most likely wait until next summer to catch it at higher flows, from a fishing standpoint, what would you guys/gals say are optimal, low, and high flows for floating those two sections of the blue?
Thanks for any help and info on this, I'm a newbie.
