Dolores questions?

I'm confused as to which section is which. CCR refers to something like 3 sections, but I think they refer to the put in and take out "something to something". What do the gauges on Phat eye refer to? What is the killer play run and what level is that good at? Which is the multi day and what is that good at?
Thanks for the input.

I can't tell you about the lower section because I havn't done it. All of the Bibles descriptions are of the lower sections except for one. The guage you are interested in if you are looking for the play run is "Delores at Delores", anything else is below the damn. The play run is great at this level 2060 cfs and is pretty good down to about 1200 cfs. If it hits 3000 cfs it is titties! Just run the play section (3 to 5 miles). If you run the whole 15 miles it sucks and you have wasted energy for last ~5 miles that is the play run.

I hope this helps

Surfpimp is correct, the best section which CRC refers to as "Upper Dolores" is the play section near Taylor Creek. This section includes the Stoner Stampede hole which is at the bottom of a long slab containging several playable waves. Unfortunately, the best put-in is tresspassing down to the bridge a couple hundred yards upstream. There is some good play for a couple of miles after the hole, and take out near Stoner. There will most likely be other vehicles parked at both the put-in and tak-out. Downstream from Stoner to the town of Dolores is pretty much a long cold day of avoiding barbed wire fences.

There is one good park-and-play hole right in the town of Dolores, and as the flows go up, the better it is. It does get covered up when the lake gets full, but that will be a while. To get there, turn at the market in town and go across the river. After about a mile, you will see the parking which is directly across the river from a softball field.
