Launch Saturday Febuary 28th.
Flows have just spiked to 3600 cfs or so.
Trip will be from Beasley Flats to Sheep Bridge ~ 50 miles on the river.
Water will be Class 3, with one Class 4, Western Whitewater rates the Class 4 a Class 3+, so a good scout will tell all. After those, water will be Class 2 and some 3.
The water will be fast moving at this level and a ton of fun. There should be a few side excursions.
Meet at Sheepbridge (takeout) on Saturday @ 9 am latest, from there we will run shuttle to put in.
Plan on 3 days on the river, possible 4 days depending on groups abilities and preferences.
This is a spur of the moment trip, Classic Arizona in Spring!
I will be taking a 15 foot raft and am looking for other rafts and kayaks//WW canoes , paddlers will be dependent upon the number of rafts, naturally.

We can plan a menu and logistics.
