Saw someone run it in a ducky couple of years back. Entertaining! Won't be able to access 6th water for acouple of months yet, unless you have a cat or snowmobile(or snowshoes and some stamina).

First roadie..OR in two weeks and counting. Bryce, Opal, and maybe canyon creek.

What is passable in the lower portion of the GA/SC area is scraping a few miles up. Recently I think it has been flowing at 1.5 ft which makes the II and III sections alright, but the IV and V's lots of butt sliding and rock slamming.
thanks for the info. one of our group did some scouting this past Sunday for the trip and found its lower than A.W>gauge on the bridge.but there are other options close by

Sounds like you have a kick ass trip planned out. From what I have been hearing the the NW crew, you are going to be boating till this time next year! I wouldn't plan on much climbing unless you just can't take anymore goodness. The sea to sky is going to f'n stomp!

Seems like there are a bunch of great trips planned. Some have kicked up good ideas for me too. I can almost hear the thaw... it's gonna start here in 3-5 weeks! YEAH DOG!

If i hadn't already started planning this trip last winter, I would probably stick around here for this snowpack.. But hey.. the PACNW looks like it also got dumped on and is going to be sick!

are there any other pacnw boaters out there or ones that are headed up this season? here is my tick list for this summer.. I am tossing around a few others.. still looking to add even more though! Oh yeah, this is just the WA list.

Near Spokane:

Hangman creek II-III+
Rock Creek II-III
Spokane River II-III
Possibly Sullivan creek, Sherman Creek, and Kettle creek up near the BC Border

Near Omak, Washington
Chewuch Creek II
Chiwawa III
Entiat Creek III-IV
Little Wenatchee III-IV+
Drake Creek to Methow IV-V
Methow River II-III
Peshastin Creek III-IV
Stehekin creek into Lake Chelan II-III
Twisp River II-III
Wenatchee River II-IV
Possibly Rock Creek near Yakima. Ingalls Creek near Leavenworth. Nason Creek on hwy 2, Sand Hollow creek outside of Vantage, and Beckler creek where it dumps into the Skykomish
Plan on possibly dropping into the Tye during its irrigation runoff (later summer)

Near Orcas Island/San Juan Islands and Anacortes.

Breaking out the Ocean Kayak and toodling around the islands, just because my house has a good beach landing in Obstruction Pass.
Bacon Creek II+-IV
Baker River II
Canyon Creek IV-V
Cascade Creek II-V

Cali Bound

Last week of March a caravan of 6 Boulder boaters headed out to hit up the Mighty T (-uoloumne), Merced, and play around the American system (north, middle and south fork)as well. Should be fun... anyone else headed out there?
When it comes to paddling, there's a difference between what you think it's going to be like, what it's really like, and what you tell your friends it was like.
