Shoshone, not sure how it is at these flows though.

American Whitewater - 07. Shoshone Power Plant, Exit 123 (I-70) to Grizzly Creek, Exit 121 (I-70), Colorado Colorado, US

The town also has a kayak park as well.

Shoshone is the ticket though I think all day wave changed a bit (anyone?). The Crystal would be good if it has water. Check it out on AW. Other than that, doud chute is within your driving radius American Whitewater - 03. Forest Service Visitor Center to Riverbend bus stop, Eagle Colorado, US Again, all water dependent. You'll likely lap the shit out of shoshone.
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.
