Poudre Rafting?

Could the Poudre float a raft right now, or is it still too low? Thanks.

5/8- good enough

I took my kayak up there today because I had my doubts about it being runable in a raft but wish I took my raft now. You'll be dodging rocks but it's floatable and fun. Saw about 5-6 rafts today and nobody seemed to be having issues. Have fun.

Plenty of water you should be able to run just about everything on the poudre. We run all the commercial sections at 3.5 feet

Rafting the Poudre this weekend was fine at 3'. Ran Lower Mish down to Bridges. Pineview was the most exciting part of the run...ended up almost flipping on the large rock river left at the bottom.

Brian, I'll be up next weekend for Tate's graduation, so I'll give you a call.
