Avon whitewater park and Eagle are at good levels finally.

Paddled a board on the Eagle yesterday and made it down to the Avon park for some surfing. The river has come up a good deal in the last week and is about ideal (still on the lower side) to find about anything you want in a boat or on a board. Paddlers have been up in Gilman, Minturn down has plenty of water, the chute is fun and Avon's park just came alive over the past week. The top feature is a riverwide low angle spot, the middle wave is a easy to surf and Bob's was even surfable on a board. Had a good time for my first Eagle trip of the season. If you are passing thru it is worth a stop for sure. And from Avon to Edwards is good to go now as well. Bring on the warm weather. Seems we may actually be in the paddling season now.

Just did Avon to Eagle County Fairgrounds in my raft with the family yesterday. It was a tad long for the kids, especially with the hedwinds, but a lot of fun. The Upper could have used a tad more water for us rafters, but it wasn't too bad at all (and I see it's up another 200 CFS today).
