Verde river beta

With the healthy snowpack in northern AZ, we are looking to do a 1/2+ float trip. The idea is to meet the family halfway between Durango and San Diego. Taking a couple of kids and a dog. found a tiny bit of info on Southwest Paddler. Time frame is early to mid May.

I'm not an expert on the Verde, but I was down it in 2005 and have been considering it for this week. To get a small raft down it, it needs to be running at least 500 cfs at the Camp Verde gauge. The level dropped suddenly this week to 550, which is common for this time of year. It's up as of yesterday to 800, but could bottom out anytime. You might be able to hike/paddle it in May, but I wouldn't recommend planning a trip for the in-laws there in May. Chris

I think there is an arizona whitewater book out theses days with all the logistics, but if it's too low to float down to the gap or child's then go from white bridge down to beasley... maybe in duckies. That section is OK down to about 150 - 200.
