Pecos Below Santa Rosa Lake

Scouting on google earth there appears to be a nice 8 mile stretch from Santa Rosa Dam to the town of Santa Rosa New Mexico, the gradient is only ~11 fpm so it's likely a float with maybe some fun spots. The canyon doesn't appear to have diversions, private property or obvious fences from satellite view it looks like a ~wild canyon about 150ft or so deep and tapering toward the town of Santa Rosa.

They are moving water down the Pecos right now and currently ~1300 CFS. I was considering going there this Saturday (5/7) to see the place and maybe fight the wind down the shallow desert canyon.

How awesome does that sound?!?!?

Any Beta would be great!!

Never been, but take the fishing gear along,
NM Dept. of Game and Fish is always posting pictures of big catches in the Pecos near Santa Rosa.
