Max raft size for an August Lodore Trip
We have an August 6th launch for the Gates of Lodore. We met some people in the Snoasis bar at The Park who predicted dire consequences for such a late run. "You will have to drag your rafts down the river" one said.
Looking at Flaming Gorge data, the average August flow since 1964 has been 1840. (with some drastic swings admittedly).
So here's my question, assuming average or slightly below average flows, what is the biggest raft we should take? I have a 12' Trib that will be perfect. We also have access to a 16' cat. Is 16' to big for the Green this time of year?
Any other thoughts on a low water Lodore trip?
