Kid friendly, Upper C, overnighter Oct 11-12 08

Anyone interested in doing a fishing trip on the upper C this weekend? Since the water is down everywhere, I am planning on taking my 14' raft with my 6 year old onboard and we will most likely have a ducky with us. The plan is to show up Fri. night, camp there and launch Sat. morning. Camp on the benches and take out at State bridge the next day. The fishing should be good and I am looking forward to getting my son on the river after leaving him behind this spring when the C peaked at 6K+.

Weather permitting

The weather is looking like snow for that area this weekend. As such, I am thinking of putting the trip off to the following weekend, Oct 11. Same plan, head up on Friday after my son gets out of school, and plan on getting on the river Saturday morning. I plan on overnighting it, but you could just as easily run it as a day trip.

Snow and cold......

I was waiting until today to see if the weather outlook would change. It has not, so it looks prudent to call off the trip. I could keep everyone warm at camp, but keeping little one's warm an the rafts while it is raining, snowing and blowing is not a winning proposition.

I am sure I will try to get something together in the spring, for the kids, before the runoff begins. And I may see some of you on Westwater next month, but I will leave the kids behind for that one, at least my own that is.

I have 8 and 6 year old boys. They love rafting and overnighters as well.

Keep me posted on any trips you do. My email is jbuckhold at gmail dot com.
