gunnison gorge


Does anyone have recent info on water temps in the gunni gorge? I'm planning on using a duckie and am wondering if I should bring a drysuit, or if a wetsuit is sufficient?

Drysuit is way overkill unless you plan on swimming the whole river and using the ducky as a kickboard. Even with the wetsuit, you'll probably find yourself diving in to cool off every 30 min or so. Air temps were in the high 90s a few weeks ago when we did it

you'd die of heat stroke in a dry suit this time of year.

and yeah,agree, i went for a swim in my shorts and shirt every time we pulled over to fish a hole last month to cool down. scorching there. My clothes were bone dry again in about 20 minutes.
