Utah Boaters!

I'm going to be living in Jensen this summer, heading back to guide lodore, but living there full time season. Looking to do some creeking on my days off. I've heard good things about boating in the Uintas, like the Upper Provo. Anyone run any of the creeks closer to Vernal? When does stuff start flowing? Is it a typical mid may- end of june season? Any local boaters want to meet up and paddle?

OB or Adrift?

I was always back-to-back trips until the end of June, so no paddling until then and not a clue on the Uintas. Cross Mountain should be good this year though...

Utards have their own forum; Utah Rivers

April and May are generally the best season in UT.

In April the S Utah stuff starts going. Zion, San Rafael and Cottonwood creek. The lower runs on the N Provo that are the fun slides and stuff are hard to hit just right. It is high side of good for 2 weeks then drops to low side of good in 3 days. So the best is to get comfortable running it high and you get a good long season on it. The upper waterfalls are good for a month, they seem t hold the same flow even when the lower is too high. The best weekend trip is Cottonwood creek, Left Hand of Huntington and San Rafael Black boxes. Usually late April, keep an eye on the gauges. They are not on USGS, but the UTrivers page has the gauge on there.
