We're headed that way tomorrow, so I'm also curious. I'd guess medium-low, but first hand eyes on the creek would be appreciated.
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied...learn to swim!

Last weekend was solid medium at 1pm timeframes. Evenings were f'n scary...

There wasn't a ton of snow up there, so I would bet Med low and med high at night.

One thing of note, that the Daisy drainage, although only a mile up the road, was fricken LOADED with snow still. The whole mountain was white. It was the highest I had ever paddled Daisy (aint saying too much, but notable) and feel that run will be cranking for another week at least, then tailing down over the next 2-3 weeks.

I would venture this is the last weekend for med "ish" flows on OBJ.

OBJ was great this weekend. Definitely low/medium flows around lunch time. Last night really wasn't too much higher.

I would also guess this weekend was the last for Upper East and OBJ. Daisy might be alright with the huge snow pack. Go get some!
History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.

Hmm, there are so many levels of low. Sat evening OBJ was low, but a nice low. This morning it was noticeably lower, but not quite obnoxiously low. While it sure looked like there was a lot of snow in the mountains above Daisy, it's clear someone just scattered a bunch of that fake snow they use at the mall when Santa's visiting all over the mountains. We did it about as late as you could do it with light Sat evening and my neck muscles after Big Wood say it's the lowest I've done it. Still fun though. I think CB is about done.

I agree with Kevin. OBJ was low but doable. Slate and Daisy aren't worth your time.

Becky Jarman. As in MAN that boof is huge. I am surprised the impact didn't knock some more water loose into Daisey. Everyone within a 20 meter radius is now sterile, and for that I am truly sorry.
