Upper Blue Oar rig

Looking to get on the Upper Blue in a 16' raft with an oar frame this weekend. They just dropped the flows to 1100 cfs, and if that holds through the weekend, is there enough room to make it through in my boat?

You might want to define "upper". Assume you mean forest service put in?

There is more than enough water @ 1100 for a 16' oar rig. Ran it at that level a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks, I am thinking about running it from below the blue river campground. I thought that this flow was plenty, but just wanted to check before I hauled the gear over the pass.

I was thinking of running the same. Anything serious I need to worry about this year that has changed from past?
