I'm looking at this again as the flows come down.
Wouldn't it be great to have a raft run that started just below RM and went to the Golden Play Park? I'm sure I'm not the only one that likes a run that ends at a Brew Pub. I have noticed that I run the Numbers all the way to BV more often since the Eddyline opened, just saying...
The dam does not appear to serve any purpose with the ditch/pipe in total disrepair. Wonder what it would take to do some mid winter cleaning or blasting to create a boat chute? Maybe if every boater in Golden went up over the winter and just moved a couple of rocks? Curious what is the status of the water rights from the dam? Golden is a great town for kayakers and it could be a great takeout for rafters.
Stringinrivers, did you row it in a raft? And how/where did you portage?
Or was it a paddle raft, with 2-6 people?
Dave, Keith does run the dam, not sure at what levels, but Keith ran Lower Narrows on the Poudre @ 5+,
so I'm not sure he is a good example of what is safe and sane.

The far left has a deep vertical ledge hole followed by a smaller but still big ledge hole with a boil line that extends out quite a ways.
I would recommend looking at that before you put in, the rest of the run is super fun.
