Estes Park streams

What streams are in the Estes Park area? I will be in the Estes Park area from Aug. 16 to Sept 13. I am a retired West Virginia raft guide and paddle a ThrillSeeker (by Custom Inflatables). Are there streams with enough water that it would be worth bring my boat? Can I find people to paddle with?

Steve, estes park has a few local rivers, but they are small and will be too low to float when you are here. They are the Big Thompson and Fall River.

The colorado river pumphouse section (mostly class II, one III-) will be running then due to dam release and its a popular float trip. Its a few hours from estes park, but its a nice day trip. The lower blue is class III and is dam release feeding into the colorado river and might be running then too.

Check for more info.

You never know about the Big Tommy, they can move water occasionally below the dam, but I wouldn't count on it.
