Run Shoshone

I have been running Shoshone about 2x a week. I got stuck at Tombstone at 1100 two weeks ago with a 16 ft Cat. I ran Tombstone river right and the middle back bar (between the tubes) got stuck on a pour over rock.

When I run the rapid just right of the Tombstone rock, I haven't had any issues. Just make sure you are able to get over and make the move just right of the Tombstone rock.

If you have a bucket or self-bailing boat, you should be okay even at 1100. I doubt you will get stuck on the rock I was stuck on with my Cat.

I would do the Colorado river over the Roaring Fork.

Shosh has been great the last few days: Flowing between 1400 and 1800. 16 footer no worries at these flows; I put my ass on the "new" rocks and pivot around in Tombstone. FR has been low, but it just popped up to 1500 today due to rain. May be fun if it stays up.
