Everything is changin all the time and the upper pry got a tweak since you were last here...
She did have a mean streak in her last week - so there was a meeting with 6 or so of us who know that spot the best... Most of us who paddle every day in BV did not want to loose this hole as we feel it has been the best spot not only in BV but also Chaffee Co....
A decision was made that a tweak was needed so Harv came up, delt with us crazy locals, and got the upper back to a super fun spot..
The change is that the lower pool height was raised - this has worked so far and the hole is more user friendly now at 500 cfs that it ever has been.. Huge props to Harv/Earl as they took the time and energy needed to make sure that the upper is still a fun and safe spot..
I am not kiddin about the upper givin up loops and the rest at 500 cfs..
Thanks again Harv!!
