Looking like it just peaked at 106,000! Wonder what sort of rearrangement will have occurred?

I posted over on Salt "trip planner" forum- me and a friend are heading down from Moab Saturday morning. If we can get through Flagstaff, we will be there for a few days.

8pm Sat eve: Salt is already back down to ~ 2,500 at put-in, ~7,000 at take-out.

We ran it in '93 and it was 8,000 at put-in, 13,000 at take-out the day we launched, rising the whole 5 days on the river. Was 28,000 the day we took off. Had 4 self-bailers and 7 kayakers. One flip early on, and everybody was busy the whole time. Finding good beaches that weren't getting flooded while we unloaded was the challenge. It was impossible to camp at Cherry Creek confluence.

Have heard it's been done self-support at 56,000. The big problem is sharing the river with saguaro cactus. Nasty. Rafts would be a liability, especially in the event of a flip in Corkscrew where the runout goes on forever at high flow.
So many rivers, so little time..........

Nice drive, lots of snow. Should be a report or two up eventually for Poland Creek.

A buddy and I headed down from co to run Fossil Creek and the Salt Daily. Unfortunately, the road to the fossil creek put-in was too snowy and we couldn't get there in my vehicle.

The Salt daily was good, we ran it at about 1,200 cfs (Sunday morning), which wasn't the massive flow we had hoped for but was still a good time. The road to the take out had a lot of fallen rocks on it which made for a slow shuttle. There were also a lot of gravel bars that we kind of bounced down, we were wondering if those are normal for that run or had maybe been put there during the flood... does anyone know? Neither of us had run the daily before and weren't sure if these were new features or not...

Driving through the snow kind of sucked, but still worth it to boat in the middle of January.

At 1200 there should not have been too much to bounce down. Must have been from the flood. I am going this Friday. Projections are for about 3-4000. Did you cross any side creeks? (Cibecue Creek) river right? The actual take out for the day run is further down, Hoodoo, but Cibecue usually floods and washes out the road. The tribe doesn't fix it until into March. With that storm I am sure it washed out but hope not.

1,200? 1,200?! Really? That might be the most disappointing trip report ever. Everyone and their mom has run it at 1,200.

Disappointing ...slightly...but HUGE props to Yakkeranna for getting after it and making the drive for the mere possibility of running it at a huge level!!! That is a true kayaker. See Craporadon's post.
