Lower Owyhee Levels???
I am planning a trip to the lower Owyhee (Rome to Birch Creek) in a couple weeks. Any opinions out there of how long the flows will maintain? A friend of mine passed through Rome last week and said there was a lot of snow in the mountains and the snotel map shows 90% snow pack remaining, but the graph is showing a pretty consistent drop, which is confusing. Has it been too cold over there for the snow melt to increase the flows?
We will have 4-5 boats in our group, all 14 and 15-foot rafts. 3 of the oarsmen are experienced with 1 novice. I have only run the lower Owyhee once at 4,000 CFS, but never at lower water. Nuisance looks tight at lower flows. Is it possible to line rafts around Nuisance?
Thanks for the feedback!
