awesome time of year to go. have fun. I did the march/april trip 2 years ago and perfect weather, especially for a guy from red lodge. we had flows at around 16-20,000 cfs. warm sunny days, rainy days, one day of hail/snow. I do remember gettin' hot on a few days near the end. Enjoy!

Mike, you should have an incredible journey whatever the flows! There may be awesome flowers as the late January rains were heavy. Have Fun! Yours, tom

Thanks Tom....yep will be awesome, 3 weeks and nearing ! Any clues as for average temps in march ? Guessing it should be upper 60's low 70, and 40's @ night. I've been down in April and May, first go at an early march launch

Hi Mark, you are good on the temps, and since it's the swing season and could be snowing at Lee's Ferry and comfortably hot in the western end, you might consider bringing both your summer gear of shorts, sarong and long sleeve shirts and winter gear of bomber rain gear or dry suit with polypro or wool hat and gloves, with top and bottom fleece x 2. In my book, especially during the swing season, there is nothing wrong with bringing too much warm and hot stuff and getting to the end of the trip having not used everything. All the best, tom

not to butt in but,

in my experience with march trips:
a week of nasty
a week of nice
and a week of in-between.

oh, and it will be windy.

and you will love it.
