Union Chutes Good to Go

I swung by Union this morning. It looks really good for only 1000 cfs at the below chatfield gage. For those beginners asking where to practice, this is a great spot that is less continous than Golden (less likely to loose gear). For a subgnar playboater like myself, the surf looks surprisingly tasty.

I was in it yesterday. There is a ton of trash in the eddies, but the holes are fun. I was considering trying to set up a day for clean-up. Would anyone be interested?

Yeah, friend of mine that rides his bike by there every day, was over last night, and said the "flotsam" was out of control.

I was there a couple of days ago at about 600+. I don't know the names of the drops, but if you count the dam as #1, then #2 is funky, #3 is the better play hole and #4 has a fast green wave with a small pile you can front surf all day long. I didn't check out much below that.
