Lake Fork of the Gunnision Info

We have 5+ canoers wanting to do the 11 miles above The Gate on July 5th. Hope there will still be water.

Has anyone run it this season? Any strainers or fences? Are the couple of class IIIs easy as someone suggested? Any troubles with land owners in this section or is it just the 7 miles below The Gate that has the pesty rancher?

We might also do those 7 miles below The Gate if the diversion dam can be run in open canoes without a likely flip. Any thoughts on this? I have read some of the older posts on this river, but appreciate any newer info I can get.

I ran it last year, at lower flow but I would call it class 2 with a lot of current going into walls. No real gradient. Beautiful though.
