How bad was the lower narrows last week ? Bump every rock in the river or a little scraping ?

poudre river in town has dropped. I don't think it even is splashing on the rock. But only a couple weeks to go. pray for slow warming and long season

living in the fort for46 years and boating the poudre for 22 doesn't make me an expert but unless the water evaporates from mouth of canyon to town the river level in town in early season tells you how its running but hey drag your boat here and go see worst thing you get a nice drive up to the Mish and have a beer

I believe what Paul quoted. I'd say it was ~0.3-0.4 Sunday in the snow. Looks like the ditch at the mouth of the canyon was started based on the gauges. Does that match what you saw Paul?

Given the canyon mouth lost ~200cfs 4/15, and N.Fork didn't and is flowing at ~270, and canyon mouth is at ~170... 170+200-270 = ~100cfs, or about what it was like last Sunday.

Narrows was a tad bumpy Saturday, Sunday would have been *much* better. I suspect this weekend should be fine. Bridges wasn't bad last Sunday if you don't mind an ELFing run, it was even better with snow.

We did a few laps thursday and it was in the .3-.4 range. Bumpy for sure, but all the drops went well.

We are going up for more laps this afternoon if anyone wants to join. My wife is trying out the new camera, so we'll hopefully post some pics when we get back.

John and Paul are the most accurate with the flow totals, about or just over 100cfs at the narrows.

Also, they will open the larime tunnel soon as well, and that will cause a large jump to the main canyon. wild and scenic my ass, but i'll be glad to have the water!!!

Filter is running at nice level

Filter Plant is running at a nice and forgiving level. I took the kids up there Saturday evening and had a nice run in the kayaks. A couple shallow areas to pick your way thru at this level but all manageable - saw several fishing rafts floating the stretch.
