Don't count on the Escalante offering more than 1 to 3 weeks of runnable flows. Smowpack for Escalante basin is < 100% (in fact, ~85%). Runoff typically peaks early to mid May. Each year is different folks. It's a matter of keeping an eye on the flows, remaining flexible, and driving straight to the put-in when conditions are optimal.

We will be lucky if the Escalante reaches comparable 2005 flows in the next decade or so.

are we talking about the river or the creek? because the snowpack info I was looking at had the area over 100%.
