I feel inclined to go with both sides here. Clear Creek would be a good run for you at certain flows with a guide who can help steer you away from the sleepers (of which there are about 1,342,987 on Lower Clear Creek. Otherwise it could definately make you sorry (especially while swimming). Feel free to post or send a message and my crew and I would be happy to show you down almost any of the runs thusfar mentioned. Later.

foxton and waterton are hard to beat. the blue below green mtn. damn is great but far from the springs. browns over a grand is fun and zoom flume is so very, very close to being a -IV. the first section on the fractions at high water, above 1500, is rowdy III+/-IV.

These are all in Northern Colorado/Southern Wyo, and longer (+8 miles) runs, but you asked.

Poudre - Upper Rustic below White Mile. This is one of the best III's out there. I've had friends from the East on it and they said it was some of the most continuous best III they've ever been on. You've got to hit it at above 3 ft on the rock. PM for more details, as there are tons of put-ins and take-outs.

Pourde - Upper Mish though Bridges late in the season (<3 - 2 on rock) will give you III+ -IV all day long.

Blue Below Green Mt. Res late in the season.

North Platte - North Gate Canyon - great wilderness canyon with one IV. Get on it between 1000-1800 cfs for your first time, otherwise it can get to you quickly. PM for more info as well.
You ARE a soul, you HAVE a body.

The Poudre has many class III's. Depending on level you can hit Bridges, Filter Plant, Lower Mish.
