Deckers was great! Easy finding it, and all that! Now I am looking at Foxton, thanks a million for all your assistance! It was very helpful!

Cheers guys!

Be careful, Foxton is a different animal so plan on swimming a bit. Shallow and rocky doesn't make for fun swims. Foxton to the confluence is easier than pine to foxton. You can also put in a mile or two down Foxton which you missed the upper more difficult part. I'd also make sure you do it at lower water. If they are releasing out of Dillon and it's over 500 cfs it is defnintely 3 plus creeking.

Yeah, I will. We walked most of it, and we plan on skipping some of the upper parts, we will walk it again next weekend and try it out, (the lower part) and maybe later peace the whole Foxton run together after a couple of try's. What gauge do I go to read the CFS on Foxton!?

Where did you end up putting in and taking out at Deckers? I am thinking about doing it this weekend.

Do you want a longer float, or just do the chutes?? I will send you the put in and take out when I get home, have to look at a map to remember the takeout. It was pretty shallow, so scraped a bit, but nothing that was bad, we floated the whole thing no problem. It was nice, I recommend doing it early!

If you haven't found the hidden gem up that way called the Bucksnort definitely head there for a beer at least once.

A bit out of the way but an icon in the area.

So, as you drive up along Deckers, you can go basically as high up as you want. However it got pretty thin up there, I would recommend, driving and scouting. We drove past the chutes, (can't miss them, just keep looking at the River and you will se it) and from there drove two parking spots further up. There are some small pull off along the side, but we parked at a bigger parking lot (the second bigger parking lot after you pass the Chute). Our takeout was about half a mile after the chute, but you could run it as low as the Confluence. Enjoy Bud!!

I have heard it from several people now, so it will be on the TO-DO list for this weekend!

Cheers again for all the help!
