Just got back from Yampa/Green a coupla minutes ago, we did Split yesterday afternoon (7/1) and had a great time. The eddy lines are strong, the boils are unpredictable and the the waves and holes are big
! That being said, if you have your head on you, and you are t-ed up to the laterals and haystacks, have a good ferry angle to pull away from the holes, and have a good sense of what the hell you are doing, you ought to be be all right. Moonshine was fun and fast, the holes were definitely there, but if you take the wave train and straight down the gut you will be golden, SOB was washed out with a decent hole river at the bottom that was easily avoidable, and Ingelsby had a scary hole that was easily avoidable.
On another note, we got hit by a microburst about 1/2 mile above the confluence on Yampa, and I swear, it was a legitimate tempest! I have never seen anything like it, we were on flat water with up stream winds of 40-50 and approaching 65-75 mile an hour gusts, I was instantly bracing 4-5 foot standing waves with the wind to my back, and being unrelentlessly pelted by hail. Epic... Did anyone else experience that event on the Yampa on Thursday?!
