Beta on Camping on Pumphouse to State Bridge Stretch in High Water

We're looking to spend a couple nights on the Pumphouse to State Bridge (or further) stretch this weekend. Last time we were there is was 1300cfs. I'm thinking there will be no beaches at this water level? Does anyone know if there are any decent ledge camps?

Thank you! Rebecca

I caught Pumphouse at just over 4K last year and most all the campsites were accessible. I didn't see any underwater. However, it's running 5600 so there's no telling. I'd bet that Cottonwood (Just after the first gorge) is open. Have fun.

Just bring the scuba gear!

You do not want to camp on the beaches anyway. The river has risen 2500+ in 24 hours and any beach can easily become flooded. It is tough guessing what is going to happen as it is snowing in the high country right now. Night time temps are forcasted below freezing the whole weekend, so the flow may drop some.

Make sure you pack the Heat and have a loud whistle to blow! Watch out for little men in canoes!
