The secret is out. "Bruno Canyon" waves. (Big Sur 2) only in high water which is usually early in these parts.

Any pictures? What kid of flows are we talking? Don't worry the location will keep the crowds down..

@ 3200 those waves were 12' to 15' with laterals comming from both left and that were 5'to 6', it was a blast at that level. It's still alot of fun at 2400.

I'll post a photo or two as soon I find them. One of the issues there is lack of access to a public put-in nearby. The closest I know of is in Paonia 8 or 9 miles upstream. Hotchkiss is the "Friendliest Town Around" though according to their sign and there is an active Conservation and River Improvement group that is comprised of various citizens including river users and riparian landowners.
