Grape mondayish?

Forgive me Mommer.
Warmish weather should be a go for monday. In my humble opinion 250 is a little low and 350 is gettin pushy. I could do an afternoon run if it comes up fast this weekend, but its a long paddle into the Tights. Scouting lots means darkness. I'm going down tomorrow won't have internets 405-334-9017

Damnit!! Looks like it's gonna flow again during the WEEK. Probably no chance it'll be in for more than a week or two eh?? I'm gonna have to see what I can do, I might be down if I can sneak away from work for an entire day (might be hard considering I'm taking the entire following week off for a big trip).

Looks like later

Looks like later than monday cool weather is dropping the water. Monday and tuesday are suppose to be in the 90's. It will run quite a bit this year. I know 3 BJ guides that ran it at 90 cfs, no thanks.

Keep your head up for any possible changes. There was a big spike back near the end of March this year and now there is a pretty big new alluvial fan where Grape Creek flows into The Arkansas River at the bottom of the Royal Gorge. It's starting to go under now with the the Ark flowing 1300ish, but at 800cfs it was fairly impressive.
