Ruby Horsethief/Westwater current flows?

I have an extended weekend coming up here in the next week or so and was thinking of heading to a less snowy locale. Does anyone have input on early season conditions for Westwater and/or Ruby from Fruita down? Is there enough flow to facilitate forward movement vs. wind is the question.

Here's the website for the flows:


As to whether it'll negate the wind, that depends on how windy it is that day. The flow won't make much difference if its really howling.

Have a good trip,

ruby horsethief in march

we 've done rh in march the last 2 years and the flow has been fine; just variable weather. It was in the low 70's in the afternoon one year and 30s in the morning/ night. Last year was cooler with scattered rain and snow one day, but overall very do-able. hope this helps.
