Farmington Whitewater?

I am looking for whitewater in Farmington, NM. I am familiar with the playpark but would like to know if there is anything else to do. I will be periodically down there til early May hoping to find something in the early run off.

-When the water gets high is there a run that might include some highwater waves?
-Where is the low head dam between Farmington and Aztec?
-Has anyone explored the La Plata River? It might have potential with lots of water.
-No need to tell me to drive to Durango, I live there.

Let me know if you have any info or want to paddle.

most of the the river access points down there have a big map posted with the location of the dams, mileages, and class (all pretty mellow).

You deserve a good paddling!

you may start lookin for some of the intermittent low volume creeks T. I see a couple here near Ignacio that eroded the sandy top layer to these (igneous?) 10-15' gorges...class 4 but real short (100 yards ish).

i'll let you know if I see these go off, we can rally on your way home.

u-let me know if you got some prospects down there I'll fire.
I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!
