Lower San Juan free of ice this xmas?

Does anyone have a report or prediction of the ice conditions on the lower san juan? Tina and I are looking to do a self-support kayak mission over christmas. Has anyone been through the canyon this month? Any beta appreciated.

I'm guessing it will be icy on the edges. It's been in the teens at night in Bluff. Call the Recapture Lodge for local insight - (435) 672-2281 or e-mail at Nice folks. I'm sure they'll know.

Kyle, I've been trying to rally a crew for Christmas with no luck. I wanted to float the devils elbow section of the Colorado primarily for the warm weather but I'd be happy to do the Juan if it is runnable. I met Tina on the salt a couple years ago. If you guys are set to self support I understand but I would gladly haul your gear. Thanks, let me know. Kjirsten
