Check out It's mostly expert whitewater but they have some run descriptions on some stuff that isn't in CRCII, and some sick photos / stories.

narrow down where you want to focus and ask about the good runs in the area. there are lots of chill people all over the state that are more than willing to help....what area/river drainage are you looking at?

If OBJ is a "must-do", then you should definitely add the Big South (Poudre) as a must-do as well. I know you have the Forks on your list, but this is truly a Colorado classic- make it a point to get up there. You can hit that drainage first and then go up and over Cameron pass to access the rest of the state. (Access-dependent, of course- check in at the Buzz to make sure the gate is open at Long Draw before going straight there. Depending on when you arrive, you might have to wait until your way home.)
