There was no body out there, I mean spring break dude and NO BODY THERE!, but we sort of figure that to be the case, when the Owyhee gets below 1000 peeps start freaking and bailing to other places which is just fine with us. Bring on global warming to thin out the masses on the lower Owyhee. Friend big T is on a 14 day trip on the lower, we caught up to him below Morcum, nobody coming down except ranger Dan. The only other peeps we saw the whole time was the 3 rafts we met at putin, which are in the whistling bird pic. Based on the camp conditions, it is very apparent few peeps have been down this year. We camped with them there and at Greely. Our group was just 2 peeps, and we were paddling double lynxs. After being there in the 500s I would totally row my SDP fully loaded. Not a lot different than 650 cfs, my previous lowest. If big T can row an 18' at this flow through nuisance, there are a lot of beotches out there crying, moaning and speculating. But of course Big T has super human rowing and levetation skills. side bar - Experiences of others at this flow at nuisance may differ
In all seriousness, nuisance can be a real bummer if you don't get your stokes right at this low flow, so take it very seriously below about 1400 cfs, when a center run becomes less feasible and the standard right then left tight s-turn ferry around the 2 huge boulders becomes the standard route. Many pins have occured there at below 1000 cfs.
