Is 600 too low to paddle raft Poudre Park through Bridges?

Never too low

Are you kidding?
You can paddle bridges in January if you got your lines down.

but seriously, I know one company *cough* -A1- *cough*that will keep running up until the end of August. you can for sure paddle raft it but do pineview too.

just dont follow yourrealdad. he'll get you stuck every time

There are plenty of rafts on the Poudre at this level. Also, you must not be be from the area, because the cfs gauge is basically worthless (not totally, but...) Most locals go but the water level at the Pineview rapid which is right in the middle of your run. Check out Poudre Rock Report for the level there. Sorry, I don't know what a good minimum level is for a raft.

Rock was at 2.8 last night. Plenty to get down all the sections. Lower Mish will be a little bony, but shouldn't give you any problems.

Wow Redpaddle, my dearest friend taking a shot at me. Now I know how Jesus felt when he saw Judas. However, just like Jesus this fellow Jew will bow out gracefully. My response to the original question would be at 2.8 on the rock it would be a great time to raft the lower narrows. Its shorter and has less bridges than the bridges section. You can follow my lines anytime cause Redpaddle must be mistaken, the rafts I rock don't get stuck, the ladies do. Plus, with my greasy 'stache I got going on I doubt either are getting stuck these days. So greasy
