Ran it Sunday super fun!!

Thanks everyone for helping out. I ran it with 4 people in a paddle raft Sunday and it was bouncy and fun with big 4ft waves coming over the top. The first 4 seats had a great ride. hoping to run it again while it's not too big. Aloha!

If you are going to take out in Eagle, you might as well go all the way to the Fairgrounds take-out. Rodeo is a blast at this level. The first take out at the fairgrounds is small and hard to hit but there is a backup takeout if you miss the first.

Agreed at this level, worth the mega rollers through fairgrounds rapid. All just right of center. Easy to miss takeout after pedestrian bridge. Hit it with hugging right bank with a couple oar pulls last Sunday at 3,500 (Gypsum), and missed it trying to hug shore too close tonight when back of raft bumped and spun with same maneuver at 3,900. Easy second chance pullout at lower end of the same parking lot. At least there is a half mile of county fairgrounds land river right to forgive errors. Just a longer walk. Lower end of lot after pedestrian bridge is where all the commercials seem to go at this level.
