Lower North Saint Vrain

Has anyone run the upper section of Lower NSV? Putting in at the gate and running the 2 mile IV-V section. I'm planning on running it thursday evning. Can anyone give me info on that stretch, or want to join me?

We ran it last Friday at 250 cfs. Today at 167 cfs might be too low. It is a great IV+ to V- run that can be made harder if you wish. Lots of low volume narrow sieve type of lines. Great to have safety conscious boaters with you.

what arn said, and I would say it is definitely too low unless it gets over 230 or so. Would be much better with double that flow.

I have 32 pictures from the lower NSV from CR80 to Apple Valley Bridge on 5/23/04. I was following two of my friends along the road on my bike. Post your e-mail address and I will give you permission to view the photo album that I have set up on Ofoto.
