Barrel Springs Running solid

It seems that all the water is coming through Barrel. There are pipes all over the put in so it might be safe to assume they are repairing the flume and the water will be ripping for a while.

Ran Barrel today. A couple of other crews were out there too. It feels like its running at about 1800-2000 on Dotsero for reference. Its a great level, not bony at all, juicy and deep. All rapids besides Upper Death run well, with almost all lines good to go. Upper Death got a good long look from someone, but didn't get run. Overall super fun, and not even that cold.

Talked to a construction worker fishing on his break as we floated by the power plant. He said all water should continue to be coming through Barrel until "the end of November".

Heading back for more Thursday.

We ran it last Wednesday. A very nice flow. And lief I promise not to stand you up again. The hole below was pretty nice, even in a long boat.
