But they also say it makes me a little dubious of the marketing hype. Especially with the intense warm weather we are having now and the MF running 6K currently.

" We won’t see epic high water levels, but people can anticipate big rides on the Middle Fork and Main Salmon during the month of June and into July when the water levels will be at their highest."

I have a really hard time believing there will be a "big ride" in July. Maybe early June to mid June.....

We'll be paddling the flat water from Moab to Spanish Bottom in 2 weeks. I've been watching the water levels and they've about doubled in the past week. Now it's heading gradually downward again. An early "mini peak" bump I guess, as normal peak for the Green and Colorado is usually mid May. We got a lot of snow in Utah up until the beginning of Feb. but then it dropped off significantly. A few rain/snow days here and there since then, but lots of 70 degree sunny days lately.

They are forecasting several feet of snow in the next week here at the Colorado headwaters.

I don't think the heavy stuff is gonna come down for quite a while.

the spike we saw on the Colorado was from the Gunnison and San Miguel, right now they are trending down, but the Yampa is looking like it is headed up! over 1k a day....

Friends ran Cat last week. They didn't scout BD 2, and saw no changes. FYI, yours, tom

My daughters just took off on Saturday, and even though it was their first time down catatract, the two people in their party that had been down it before, said it looked pretty similar as past trips, but there could have possibly been another rock in the left have of the river in Big Drop 2.

I can confirm the new feature in BD2. At 10k it formed a hole above "the mother in law" it will be fun to see how it changes the entrance to the tailwaves in two and a half as the water rises.
