Sunday is the day for Clear Creek

I'm not sure the word is out, but Clear Creek is open only this weekend before it closes. Run it Sunday, or wait.

One reason I think it is important to run it on Sunday is that it may be really high by the time the road is opened again. It helps a lot to run it at the lower water level before getting on it at the higher water level, which can be real nasty. 800 cfs on Clear Creek is tough.

A lot of folks around here will probably get lots of paddling time in on Bear Creek before the road opens, but I think it is a good idea to jump on Black Rock ASAP. It would be nice to get in some days before it gets too serious. I think I would be a nervous wreck if my first Black Rock run of the season was over 700 cfs, but maybe that's just me. My personal record for a long swim in there is 950 cfs. That was years ago and I still pooh a little bit in my pants when I think about it.
