Crystal Beta

This may have been discussed before, but last spring we had a nice raft run down the Crystal/RF from Avalanche creek to Glenwood. Couple of low bridges on the Crystal so thought I'd give anyone who tries it a heads up. We put on about 10:00 AM and when we left Carbondale the USGS real time flow was 1200. Barely made the bridges - say 6" clearance. Checked the flow later and it went up to 1600 that day. Not sure exactly what the flow was when we went through, but I'd say don't try it if the flow is over 1200 in the morning.

Scout the BRB bridge and you will know if you have anything to worry about.
I do not see the Crystal getting up to the same levels we saw last year, but would love it if they did.

jgrebe, if you want to hit up bogan or the narrows, let me know.

Hey Brendo. I'd be interested. My boat is a pretty big cat so not sure it would be the best for Bogan but always up for an adventure. Give me a call 379-7018 jeff
