Recently moved to the front range after guiding on the Rogue river in Southern Oregon and a couple trips on the MF Salmon in Idaho. My roll is weak at best in a pool so not feeling like trying that out on the river yet. So I am bringing a 14' cat and/or 14' paddle boat and a few experienced friends......somewhere. That is the question now. I'd like to get down to the Ark but I imagine finding a campground this weekend might be tough. Other options are the Poudre, the Blue, or the Upper CO. I did the Upper Blue last year but I would actually like to see the canyon on the lower if everything else falls through.
What are some recommendations? Is camping on the Ark going to be tough? Even if I bring the cold cooler and a warm bottle? So many questions with only one real intent....get on the water!
Also, what are some ideas for a newbie kayaker with a weak roll but a solid wet exit
