6th Annual Colorado Wooden Boat Float - Wooden Boat People
Friday: Pre-Float There will be a few boats putting in at Pumphouse and floating through Needles Eye Rapid in Lower Gore Canyon and Yarmony Rapid in Red Canyon and camping. The rapids are Class III and this is a good float if your comfortable on the oars and/or you can follow another boater through the rapids. This float is 10 miles to Rancho del Rio. Everyone will show up to the river at different times on Friday and therefore this is day unorganized besides finding Ron on the river with a camp set up after Yarmony Rapid. Thanks Ron. I hope to launch between 1-2:00pm
Saturday: Meet at Rancho del Rio 10:00 am for 10:30 launch. 8 mile stretch to Two Bridges take-out. One Class II/III rapid "Cable Rapid" follow other boats line trough it then flat water after State Bridge. We will find a camp along this stretch and grill burgers and brats here, do some fishing, talk boats and have a campfire. You can pitch a tent with us or float out the short stretch to Two Bridges and stay elsewhere. Tommyknocker Brewery is sponsoring the Saturday Washers Tournament with some of their fine beer. Hotels in Kremmling, Yurts at State Bridge, camping at Pumphouse or Radium.
Sunday: Pancakes and Capri Suns. Float Two Bridges to Catamount 10 miles Class II water. Nice Float, some good fishing. Good Sunday on the river.
Food and beverage are bring your own. We will have a kitchen setup and some firepans for cooking. Camp is where we find it and we will have a groover. It is good to bring firewood, charcoal, water and a wood boat.
