Flows are low, but legal. Road into the top isn't open yet. Goop soup.

I had called the permit office last Wednesday, and they left me a voicemail Friday saying they did not have any update on road conditions, and have only issued 1 permit so far for Chamberlains. Zion adventure company did not call me back about shuttle, so probably not operating it yet.

Flows are getting close to 600 if that is still the max.

Also worth mentioning -- a group of us ran this in early *May* last year, and there was still shelf ice and big drifts of old snow as far down as the Deep Creek confluence.

The snow wasn't much of a concern, but aufeis or shelf ice could be a bad deal in such a constrained place.

Every year is different and all that, but I'd suspect it's still very much winter in those depths right now, regardless of the road conditions to get to the put-in.

Be aware, and prepared.
