Encampment Bridges...

At what level do the bridges on the lower Encampment (Riverside to Treasure Island) become an issue?

Heard they are not runable now at 3300 cfs. Assume this is the Highway 680 bridge?

i would say they are not runnable at current flows. there's also a big diversion on the encampment just upstream of the confluence with the platte. it's pretty clean, and i've run it a few times but not at current flows. i would guess it has to have a nice hole at the bottom.

the suspension bridge just upstream of treasure has to be impassable at current flows too. i've had to duck under that thing at 2k before.

if you're looking for the drakes, i'd guess they're a couple of weeks away. water temps have to still be too cold.
