TR at 1400cfs
no trees or hazards observed on saturday 7/2/2011 at 1400 cfs release from Dillon. i suspect the flow around BRCG and Columbine was a little higher from some additional water being contributed by the tribs below town, but it did not appear that the tribs were raging to me. lots of commercial activity with big paddle crews, the Columbine ramp was crowded at times.
the pipeline may start to come into play soon for rafters. at 1400, my paddle crews were able to easily duck under the pipe, but if we remained seated upright on the tubes we were very close to bumping our heads. the pipe may already be problematic for some oar rigs and cats at 1400, especially those with a DRE captain's chair. as i recall, the pipe sits higher above the water on river left and slopes downward to sit slightly lower on river right. however, the river left line will lead directly into a large pourover immediately below the pipe. just my personal observations of the pipe at 1400 on 7/2. later.
