I'll say 1700 cfs. it will need to happen fast and hot to get there.

I've done Black rock at 1600 in 97 and 1500 in 2003 or so.

Didn't want anything to do with Rigor or Narrows, but it was fun to watch Gary give 'er.

I say 2 grand. There's still a bunch of snow up there and we're close to the '96 high for today, which went way above that.

I wanna do Kermits to Golden at peak--the upper and lower stretches kick ass at high water!

Clicking through the guages on clear creek yesterday, many of them were the highest recorded flow for the date, with 1996 being the old max! Wow!

Seems that a lot of the lower eleveation stuff like chicago creek and the north fork of clear creek are pumping in a lot of flow. If those hold out while the upper snowpack gives, it will be huge. If it stays cooler and the lower elevation stuff peters out as the high elevation snow kicks in, we will have good juicy flows for a longer time. Either way its going to kick ass!

My guess is 1666.

If anyone runs Rigor Mortis near peak flows this year I'd be interested in hearing how it goes. I've never seen it run over 1000 and I'd pay good money to see that.

Roy, if you run it I will make a sling that you can use to carry your balls around in when you are not in your boat.

Rigor @ 1000 in a XXX

I did rigor when it was around 1000cfs once. I thought I was dead. The white room at rigor is what I call it. I came up some where under the bridge if I recall right. the XXX is truly the suv of kayaks.

Ture, you'll have to do better than that to get me in there at 1666 or whatever it gets to!

I do think it would be easier there than at 900--the entrance rocks are buried, the undercut's buried and the hole's flushing (I'd hope), but I still reserve the right to take the far right line!

Wasn't the snowpack something rediculous like 300 % in 95? Or maybe that was just the moisture totals? Remember it rained for almost 30 consecutive days??? I'll guess 1401cfs.
