Thanks for the information. That is what I was worried about. With the cool weather this week I think it will be 1,000 to 1,100cfs and don't need an epic Sunday with an early Monday morning. Is taking out at Bennett Peak going to save me any real time? Anyone else have an opinion on how long of a float to allow from Routt down to Treasure Island?

2 long days

But I don't think that taking out at Bennet will save you enough time to make up for the hassle. We did Bennet the first time we ran it. That was a loonnngggg shuttle. Now we take 3 days. The third day is short, just Bennet to Treasure. It's flat and twisty, but the current seems to move right along.
As for times, I think that Northgate to 6-mile is maybe 3 hours. It moves along pretty fast through that stretch. The rest of the times seem reasonable.

I haven't run in in years, but remember the current cruising along pretty good. So, how many would try to do Routt to Treasure island and 2 days at the expected levels? Anyone?
