Where to go in late April?

I am looking for a trip for the last week of April or the first week of May - semi-warm, some rapids and good beer floating, any suggestions?

Southeast is usually a good bet around that time of year with Cheoah running on the weekends, the Green, Chattooga River being pretty consistent, and that being about the time the SE gets rain.

Maybe Arizona or New Mexico depending on the snowpack and temperatures.

As of now Arizona and New Mexico are looking very good for early spring trips...although late April/early May may be a little late for AZ.

Lower Taos Box might be a good option, half-dozen or so good III+/IV- rapids and lots of flatwater with superb scenery.

Owyhee is usually running but it wont be warm. A lot shorter drive. Very pretty canyon
Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.
