Everybody knows that NM is having the worst drought in history. Nothing much is going to flow at all. But the brazos is good to go right now. A group of us hiked in from the bottom to hit a few of the drops coming out of the second canyon. Big and juicy. The flow was probably around 600-700cfs. A bit high for the whole run but it is dropping as we speak. Not sure if the putin is still snowed in, but if it isn't, the entire run is on. Below is a link to flows at Chama at La Puente gauge.
As far as we have figured out, the Brazos is about half of that flow. 200-500 cfs for the whole run is good. 500 cfs would be beefy. It will probably flow for another week or so. Remember that there is no 100% accurate guage for the run, La Puente is just a good guess. Best way is to go to the takeout and get a visual before running it. Also getting to the putin is hectic and on private land, you could get turned away, but is you get past all that then you will be rewarded with a trip of a lifetime. Link below is to my website, click on Brazos river and a map and directions will be downloaded to your desktop. This map has new takeout directions that are different than the CRC quidebook.
ps, miles to the new takeout are an estimate, keep your eyes peeled for the road described.
