Cataract Tow through Powell

I am looking for info about getting a tow out of Cat. What companies do people use? What are costs like? Is it worth it with the current lake levels or is it possible to row it out?

Thanks for any advice,

i have never heard of commercial tow outs on cat. maybe others will have a line on them. we take a motor. we have rowed out in our youth, but it is a LONG way.

if you are planning to go soon (spring) there can be some terrible upstream winds. i'm talking white caps.

we there in october: there was a lot of lake and backwater. it was a long day and a half of motoring.

Folks used to get towed out regularly back when the lake was really high in the late 80's and 90's. I got jet boated out around '89 but I can't remember the name of the company (Dale something). I'd called the Hite Marina, Tex's, or Holiday Rafting for suggestions.

Yeah, 10-12 years ago there was a guy at Hite who blasted up above Dark Canyon and tied up a rental skiff w/motor for us to pick up and use to pull our 2 rafts out. Don't remember the name.
