Talked to a couple guys at the take out on the Blue just up from the confluence who told me they had rafted through the canyon. Saw 3 other cars parked there so maybe those guys were rafting through the canyon, too. The flows yesterday were around 600 and then 800 cfs after around noon or so and are going up, according to BoRec, progressively to 1400 by Saturday. It's now 956 cfs as of today's 10 am reading.
Anyone boating the canyon may still want to go down and scout, however, as the increased flows may move and re-position the downed trees. Maybe take some pics too. Also, the broken limbs may be exposed and/or submerged just under the surface presenting different situations than at the lower flows. See the pics. It's about a 10 minute hike to the upper strainer location as described in previous posts and pics.
