The Colorado river is free of ice around Glenwood and the lower Eagle below Gypsum is as well (and prime SUP trout fishing right now). If you want to try out the Jackson SUPerCharger or SUPerFishal send me an email or message here on MB and I will leave one in my yard for you to pick up in Gypsum. No charge, just go have fun. Makes river running way easier on the right board.
And if you are road tripping to Moab etc for a few days, feel free to take one along.
Here is a clip of river running recently on it. Its really stable and easy to learn on. Click the right corner to see it in 1080p
