How is west water right now?

So I have a friend that wants me to go on a westwater trip sunday. I am going to go regardless, and if it is to boring I will just start drinking. I am taking my LL Stinger, but I am wanting to know is there any thing worth it in there.

I went yesterday it was fun, water was cold 40 , no real ice, fire was nice, some play , didn't see anyone except workers pouring the new ramp . We had a raft so it may have sucked if you are a hater. I'm going to go Saturday.

Bring a play boat - lots of fun to be had in there. For me it is like cataract - lower water is better.

I'd second the playboat. If you've never been then it's worth it no matter what. Surely you can look at the guage and figure out what the flow will be. Then run a search on the buzz for westwater + cfs and get 10,000 different threads describing every minutia of the run. It's really pretty though and would still be worth your time if it was class I.

What are the "Hardest lines" at this flow. I heard there could be a few boofs in, holes to punch, and choppy water. I plan to take my stinger, becuase I hate flat water, and have not used my stinger much. But if there are some boofs or spots that I can punch or play in a hole where are they?

Well I would second the playboat, 4 or 5 surfable waves that are worth it and the flatwater wasn't terrible. If you have a raft going just throw your boat on for the ride out and help row, that's what they are for right. If you are set on the stinger the only ones I can remember are left in the last rapid or possibly center if the rock at the bottom is under (sorry don't know any of the names) right in skull (okay I lied) right down most of the first ones except for the ones with the obvious left chutes with the house size boulders. There are also some cool boily eddy boofs you could throw right next to the main line too just to make it interesting. I think it is worth it. what else would you do, ski?
