Plateau Creek 2016

Looking for any info from people who have run it. Anything specific to watch out for or is it clear from the bridge/turn all the way to the Colorado River? Has the barbed wire fence been cleared?

Probably running it this weekend if weather is decent if anyone wants to meet out there.

I ran in in 2011 at about 1k. Not much in the way of rapids (a few easy III's if I recall correctly), but a beaut of a float. I don't recall any barbed wire at that time. If you encounter any, I expect it would be easy to avoid due to the non-continuous nature of the run.

Plateau Cr.

Best put-in option around MM53 where there is a large pullout on the west side of the highway. Not to be confused with the one around MM56 which is a put-in for the shorter run. We have already done some runs at 225 and 325 cfs. I don't like doing the last 1/2 mile from the bridge down until around 400 mostly to prevent boat damage if you stray from the deeper lines. Nothing spectacular at these levels unless someone is looking for a nice mellow float. No fences downstream of MM53. No info for above that. May be able to get out this weekend.
