Camped at Greeley on the last night and made it all the way to LG and that was after a side hike, hot springs stop x2 and ranch stop. And still made it to LG by 2pm. No carnage.
Could you clarify a couple of points for me?
Roughly what was your schedule that last day?
It looks like you stopped in two different hot springs below Greeley. Blackrocks and... the only other one I know in that stretch is under water at these flows.

As a sad side note to the Owyhee, the Bighorn population is undergoing a massive pneumonia die-off. With an estimated 60% loss in a Oct flyover. According to a personal conversation with a ODF&W employee.

the last day we left Greeley at 8AM, stopped at the other hot springs that was actually not under water, hiked up the slot canyon, rowed to Griffith Homestead, hiked around and took pics, another quick stop at the island water wheel, then stopped again at Black Rocks. We reached Leslie Gulch by 2:30 and were leaving by 3pm.

Very sad to hear about the Bighorn population.

Just got off the river, and we had about 4 miles of reservoir to paddle across to get to Leslie Gulch. I think the water level needs to be several feet below Leslie Gulch for there to be flow all of the way. Fortunately we had a tail wind!

Is Leslie gulch inside a wilderness area or surrounded by private ranches ? I've driven there once a long time ago. Is it illegal to take motorcycles or quads to where the river flows into the reservoir? Not understanding the need to get to Leslie gulch. Thanks.

The water level is about at the bottom of the ramp now. Back when folks were floating with river current all the way the reservoir was 15 to 20 feet lower

We paid $160/car to get them shuttled from Rome to Leslie Gulch. We used Owyhee River Shuttles.
