Eastern boater looing for beta on creek levels in 2 weeks

Might do a week out there in a few weeks and need some beta on predicted levels for a few runs:

Lime Creek, how long will it hold this summer
Baker's Box, when is the low end window
Upper animas, fun low level cutoff?
South mineral, how late does this one go this season
Vallecito, looks good now, how bout in a few weeks? Good at 1.6-1.7 or 2 feet better?
Black Canyon, how often people do it, hitchable?
Good cfs flows for OBJ and Daisy? How late will they still have decent water?

I would appreciate any beta on this stuff, I have never been to Colorado but might be able to try for the best of the best for a week if things work out.

Thanks for any info

Looks like things are peaking now and should be coming down in the next two weeks. The southwest snowpack is pretty much toast looking at the snow reports. I'd venture to say that the smaller creeks might be done by then. Its hard to tell exactly what will be running, but there will still be good boating to be had. You might not get the southwest creeking classics in, but if you have the time to cruise around the state you should have plenty of fun boating. You really have to keep an eye on the levels and see whats going when you get here. Check out www.eddyflower.com for some good online stuff on colorado.
