Poudre Bridges....

Thinking about running upper / lower rustic or S-Gulch past pineview. I've done the pineview section before, but only in a paddle raft. This time we are taking 12' cats w/ little frames and oars, so the seats sit fairly high. How much clearance do the bridges have at current levels, and at what level is this a bad idea?

You should be fine.Only bridge to worry about(as far as fitting under,at current levels) should be the takeout bridge for upper rustic....forget the name

I wouldn't row rustics under 4ft unless you're totally bored with Stevens down. Oars will take a beating. It's shallow. Regarding the bridge seperating U/L Rustics--Above 4ft,it always seems to be a toss-up,as to which boats will fit under and which ones won't. Best to just pull over river right and judge.
