just looked at the graphs and it looks like ssv should be "in" and I'm going to guess that you'll have half in little T of what it is reading at Berthoud. Probably wishful thinking!
Ill check this thread before I head out around three, if anyone else wants to head up there.

I'm trying very hard to be responsible and work this afternoon. Any predictions on how tomorrow will be? Or do I really need to spend 30 mins at Trestle tonight...

I really needed 30 minutes at Trestle. It was worthy. Dropping fast but it is a great surf right now. Eddy access was still holding good when I left. Very fun.

Did anyone run/get a visual on SSV today? Any thoughts for the morning?

SSV was at a minimum level for the standard run. New guage was at 6" (black line) surging to 7" at both four pm and 6:30 when i checked it. The dwr graph showed a free fall of 80cfs in town while we were on there, but didn't see much correlation of dropping from watching the new guage. Maybe it was the nsv that ended up having more flow?

THe narrows were definitely in at a low flow, like i said the rest of the run was low, but fun for the first time out this year, all the larger rapids were filled in nice, just a lot of fu rocks inbetween. Scott estimated about 120 cfs in there.

One log in the busy water after the rock you kind of have to duck rapid...known as left, left, right, left to some. The main current does push you into this log.

One other log somewhere past the slot drop, but before the island drop. This second one is almost river wide, but not in really busy water and we ducked under on river left at this level. That will change at any higher flows. Other than that it was clear.

Hope you'll got some frigid water today!

Didn't check out little T, but it sounds like it was really willowy, and this was over a decade ago...

Laps on SSV Narrows late afternoon yesterday after crackeryaker. Nothing to add, a nice fun low level (6") for laps

I'm looking at gauges and it seems that Eldorado is the only option for the front range, am I missing anything?

So close... but not quite there. Bummer.

6" on the SSV gauge last year was a nice padded 200+ med/low. I suspect yesterday it read 6" with significant amounts of water coming in between the run and town. Last year 4" was low when rain wasn't involved.

Back to slim pickins today. At least we got some much needed moisture.
