Roaring Fork below Basalt

Needing some info about this stretch. Thought I had heard of a play-park under construction near Basalt. Has this been built and completed? Also what are the put-in options between Carbondale and Basalt?

Park is under construction, was supposed to open by the end of March, but not sure of that detail.

Put-ins:
Wingo Bridge, if headed up valley, pull off on the right side of highway 82 just after a bridge over the river. There's a ramp, but usually you can't drive down.
Hooks bridge off of "Original" way. Very small eddy in high flows, possibly kayak only.
Catherine Store Bridge, more of a kayak put-in.
"Pink", below Hwy 133 bridge in Carbondale, at intersection of Hwy 82. Go ~1/2 mile further north on 82, take the first turn-off towards the river (no stoplight), and follow upriver to put-in.
Have fun!

Park is done. I am going to head over there in the next couple days. There are two features. One is steep and looks good for kayaks and short surf or sup boards.
2nd feature is pretty mellow.

There is no gauge in that area, so i am going off the Emma gauge.

Care to share your range from the emma gauge? What's worth coming up for, at what level does it blow out, etc...?

Thx.

I live 2+ hours away. My request was an attempt at establishing what's worth making the drive for, and what isn't, for those of us that don't have a play park in our backyard.

Maybe you intended your response to be tongue in cheek, but it came off as snark.

I apologize but I'm not sure what part you found snarky as the post states it is brand-new and has not been run yet. Seems as though people do not use the search function's or read previous posts and expect everyone to answer things for them.

Soooooo, you're telling me I should search for information that you've *just* said doesn't exist?
