I'll answer my own question. The Blue is free of any strainers and was a GREAT run today in the Shredder at 590cfs.

tree update?

i floated from town to blue river CG on sunday to fish, and was talking to some folks about the whitewater section below. they reported the tree was still in the river at that time, but the flows have come up more since then.

anyone have a new update on this tree? anyone running it after work or before the w/e so i can get a current report before the w/e? i might come up for laps this saturday, and i could bring my small chainsaw along if the tree could be partially cleared by a 14" cut. thanks in advance.

When you say "town" which bridge did you put in at? I have always put in at the normal bridge above blue cg and then out at columbine. Never fished it, always r2 or row.

Also, is blue river campground open? you drag all the way up?

I'm a competant class III boater w/ a 16' bucket boat. Would the blue be a fun river to run for me? Which section(s)?

The downed tree is exactly where this post has been saying it is. I dont think a chainsaw would do much at this point. Just go left. It really is only an issue because its on a class III stretch. A class IV boater would just go buy it and not think twice.
