Suggestions for Denver area paddling July 15-17?


In Denver July 15-17 looking for a little class 2/some class 3 water to paddle on a day trip. I notice that cfs numbers are still high for this time of year. Thinking of Clear Creek as it nears Golden and the South Platte above Chatfield Reservoir. We'll bring our solo Inflatable Kayaks (Aire Strike & Innova Safari). Any recommendations from those with recent experience? Best put-ins and take-outs?

Clear creek will still be hot though the play park will be occupied by the Junior Olympics during that time so it'll be packed. I'd say if you can get up to the Poudre it'd be a grand time.

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.
