Rio Chama Level for 16 foot Cat?

Hello Buzzards! I need some advice. I have a permit to run the Chama in late June and wondering what level will support my 16 foor NRS cat. Appreciate your assistance.

Personally I would say anything over 600.... depends on your ability to move it around I guess.

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.

Agreed. You'll be on your toes looking for deep water but 600 cfs should be good enough.

It really doesn't get too thin until the lower section. If you're worried, just take out below the monastery and skip the last bit down to Big Eddy.

The police never find it as funny as you do
