The cfs gauge dropped at least 50cfs since yesterday. Was it that cold up there lastnight?

That sharp drop on the gauge looks like a diversion. I think there are a couple of us going up there this afternoon trying to leave the fort by 5.

Ha, first rock report of 09. I wouldn't call it a report really but it was maybe .5 a foot yesterday. Boof practice at Whiteline was all I accomplished but some people ran uppers-lowers. I think there might have even been a swimmer in lowers though i'm not sure.

It was a little nippy up there yesterday too.

Yes the rock was at .5 yesterday. We lapped WL 8 times! Then ran all the way through the lower narrows. Middle was bony but fun. Lower was good to go...a great level for beginners. However, the final 2 channel drops into the eddy was kind of nasty. I'll confirm it did claim 1 swimmer but I can't remember who it was ! Also my roommate Cindy made her first ever lower run also so congrats to her.

I'd lean more towards the 0.4 ish range (definitely below 0.5 assuming a
linear scale) at ~7pm yesterday when I ran Bridges. I think I decided
100cfs might be my lower limit (it was 120) for Bridges, not sure on

There are 3 logs on Pineview/Bridges to watch for, one at the
top center (just right of the top pinnacle rock), one just above
grey rock bridge, and one just above the popup/ender hole.

There's another group aiming for BTO @5:45, though I'm not
sure where the diversion was done at... I'm hoping below Bridges
rather than say Long Draw, Chambers, etc.

Good to hear narrows section isn't bad, though I figured those last
two drops on Lower could be interesting.
