Upper C Conditions Beta

I am looking to get some beta on the conditions on the Upper C. Wondering how much snow is still on the ground, can you access Pumphouse? Was hoping to get out this weekend but I am thinking with the recent snow fall that might not be possible.

Thanks for the help.

I don't have any direct beta, but its running pretty low(between 500-600cfs) and I bet there is ice and snow on the ground and in the river still. I don't think the mountains got hit as hard as Denver for the last storm, but the week before that some places got a ton of snow (like 40").

I've been wanting to get out too, but I think its a bit too early. I suspect its also gonna have some ice and such, but you could try Glenwood Canyon (Grizzly to Glenwood) or Two Rivers Park to South Canyon or Newcastle. Lower elevation and a bit more flow makes for a more pleasant run this time of year.

Upper C is running and open from Pumphouse down. Shuttles are being run and I heard the fishing is great. Pumphouse has been open for about 3 weeks.

I would be surprised if it is anything other than good to go. I went there 2 weeks ago to fish and all roads and ramps were wide open. Several boaters launching boats from trailers. I doubt the recent snows have changed that. I'll ask around up here to see if anyone went yesterday and if there is anything different to report, I will.
