Eagle River beta

Hey i'm thinking about running the eagle tomorrow and was wondering if anyone has been down it recently and what the flows are like. I know they're low but I think it's still doable. Also what stretch is good for class 2 & 3 and maybe some fishing? I'm thinking the stretch from Edwards down is what i'm looking for. Any info would be great! Thanks!

There is some good info about the Eagle at current flows on this thread:

Eagle a little boney, but fun

Ran it from Wolcott to Eagle on Thursday, 5/31. Was roughly 1000 cfs. Put in above Trestle Rapid, which was super fun. I-70 Rapid and Dead Cow both fun. Watch for rocks ... swam once b/c I let my guard down and hit one of the many. Also, there was a downed tree or something on a river right channel just outside of red canyon. When in doubt, go left. Level looks like its on the rise too, so go for it!

I ran it this past saturday at about 1250 from Water Treatment to Wolcott. It was a great trip with excellent water clarity. Not boneyard but it keeps you on your toes. Trestle was a blast. It'd recommend it.
