This sounds great, I need some more people to boat with. A girls group would be fun, and I'd love to get out and try some new rivers. I've never done CC, so please keep me informed as well!

Hi gals,
I agree with COUNT - you definately want to have a bombproof roll - it wouldn't be fun to take a swim (or to be upside down for that matter), because the rocks are really sharp. You also want to be in control - this isn't a run for new boaters. I would say that the sections from Lawson to Tunnel 1 are class IV - kinda creeky. Would you guys agree?

I would agree. Lower Clear Creek has some technical spots and there are a lot of rocks in funny places that tend to mess with boaters who aren't really good at picking out the sleepers (Tenmile honed that skill for me). Upper is a little more technical but has a lot fewer FU rocks (but a couple more precipitous drops) and the best line is more likely to be where it appears to be, unlike the Lower. Lawson to Kermits has lots of fun technical paddling that offers a million different lines and approaches. I'm looking forward to seeing a few more ladies on the river this spring .

I agree. I love the Dumont section. At higher water it is definately pushy and creeky style. A blast if you are solid. Not so much fun if you are not ready for it- A friend of mine got out after the first mile this year as he rolled about 5 times in the first section. Bonus is that it is roadside so getting out is an option. As the water comes down it gets less pushy but definately shallow- so you dont want to be rolling much.

Hey are you gals running this in a creek boat or play boat?

You know, it might be fun for us all to host(ess) a day on our home river next summer. We can pick a few days where we get together on a different river, and the local girls are the tour guides. Ladies days around the state!

The FC girls would be psyched to show y'all the Poudre...anything from Upper Mishawaka down the canyon (well, maybe not the Filter Plant), and also the Middle Narrows. Lower Narrows is fun too, but we might need to invite some boys on that trip, cause I'd hate to have anyone follow my line.

There are a few different sections. They all depend on the level. The Dumont section can be run in either a play or creek boat- I was glad I had my creek boat at high water this year. The other sections it varies- mostly creek boat for upper CC and black rock. Lower clear creek is mostly a playboat run, but does get up to class 4-.
Holly, I definately want to get up to FC to run the Poudre this year! I want to practice my boof- I here there is a good spot!
