eagle this weekend

I'm planning on taking my new(very old) bucket boat on the Eagle this weekend. Going to try to run the upper and lower eagle runs, and maybe the dowd chute depending on the levels.

Anybody want to join? We be glad to provide some cooler beers to any safety kayaker who wanted to tag along with us and pick up any detritus.

Any new beta on those stretches this season?

Ran Upper Eagle below Dowd's last Sunday. It was a great level at 1700 cfs, would consider running again this Sunday. The Edwards Mile is the only thing on the upper of significance. Havent ran the lower yet, but might be interested. PM me if you want to run together, so far have nobody to run with in Sunday.

I've been wanting to run this sometime. I may be interested in bringing my cat if I can find somebody to drive with and maybe get some help loading and unloading.

From the bridge at Eagle-Vail to the water treatment plant in Edwards the run is mostly read/run class III-III+. There is one man made drop/dam that is weird but not much to worry about. Hit is hard with some speed. The Edwards Mile is fun and fast. Be heads-up.
