Q's about rafting the Poudre at 2.5'
A (non-boating) buddy has friend's in for a wedding this weekend. I've offered to take them on the Poudre to go rafting thursday. Is it too low to take a 16' raft through? Thinking upper mish through Pineview or bridges. We would paddle as opposed to rowing. ANyone have advice or think we need smaller boats? I have an aire 156 which is just shy of 16', but more in line width wise with a 14er. I have access to another Riken 16, which I think is probably too wide. I was planning to rent a 14 and use my 156. Is that a viable plan at this level?
WHat are river temps up to. I was thinking we would not have wetsuits. IS that appropriate? Also, I usually kayak or row on float trip. I don't have alot of experience paddling rafts. Anything else I should consider?
