Warm Springs rapid on 6-9-11
Hi Fellow Rafters,
Our group of 9, the Roland Parker Group, put in last week at Deerlodge on June 6th. We ran Warm Springs at this season's high of almost 29,000 cfs on last Thursday. All 6 boats made it through rather easily. Maytag hole was a monster; however, if you stay on the right edge of the upper wavetrain and cut the lateral keeping left of the rock pourover just before Maytag hole. You can fairly easily stay left of Maytag at this point and out of the hole. I brushed the right side of the hole pour back and it helped to push out our 16" cat river right and down past the major action. The eddy below was a log jam and just beware that we saw many trees up to 25 to 30' floating down the Yampa at speeds of up to 12 mph.
