I would like to do the lower owyhee and have been watching it spike and crash this spring. I did it a couple years ago 2011 i think and the river was running like 4500 cfs. But, I would like to do an IK self support trip and I am just wondering if any of you out there on the buzz have experience in the 100-400 cfs range. If you look at Google Earth the latest LandSat image was taken on July 20, 2013. The river is clearly very very low and all the rapids look like solid rock with no water channels at all. I looked up the daily data on the usgs gage and the data shows that on that date there was something like 55 cfs flowing. So there is clearly a close out for the river, but I'm just wondering what that might be. Also I was wondering how long the shuttle to birch creek takes. BLM site says 28 miles from the turn off north of jordan valley on cow creek road? So I'm thinking like two and a half hours to do the shuttle. River is running 302 cfs right now, praying for rain and then a week and a half of sunshine!
