Yes you heard me, 1000 CFS up from 75 CFS. Its going to fun and its going to be juicy.
Super rare run hasn't run in 10-15 years. Game and fish are warning people to stay out of the canyon so its our time to shine!
Sounds like we have a small crew planning a trip out tomorrow morning around 8 ish. your welcome to come. I'm not sure what kind of water its going to be, im sure big holes and big waves so be on your game.
The play park is also flushing for those playboaters. 3000-5000 cfs going through the park. Casper is going down.
Hit me up if you wanna meet up

Looks like a really cool place. I hope you remember where all the sieves are because with 1000 cfs, they will probably sneak up on you. If it happens to still have water by June 3, I will make the trip up there (pray).
Have a great time and be safe! Take some pics, that will be a historic run.
Just got back from the Canyon on a quick scouting mission( I was too anxious and went out too early). It will be full on 1000 by tomorrow morning and will be running for at least a week. I talked to the game warden and they are thinking it will end up being high for almost a month!
We are taking a quick upper canyon lap tomorrow morning and then most likely will be doing the full canyon soon after that.
I'm still not positive on Beta for the run, i have only ran the upper canyon. And from what I hear(the last time this canyon ran I was 4) the upper canyon is class 3/4 with some possible play and an easy quick shuttle. The lower canyon is a bit different, not many people know much about it. I do know that in areas there are spots not much wider than 2 creekers end to end. The lowest section ( and what looks like the biggest section) most likely will need either a boat shuttle out of alcova or a looooong flat water paddle out of the lake side of the canyon.
In all I'm thinking:
upper canyon: class 3/4
middle canyon:class 4+?
lower canyon: class 4/5?
I'll let you know what we find out tomorrow and as we scout stuff.
Aaron give me a ring if ya want to rally down here. Once we find out more I'll let you know if its worth it.
Jason and I got in on the upper canyon this morning for a pre work run at about 800 cfs and had a blast! The upper canyon is confirmed class 3 with the first drop maybe pushing 3+ to 4-. The rest of the canyon looked pretty good. I think we are going to go out tonight and walk the rest of the rim and scout the full canyon.
I'll throw a couple of pictures up of the upper canyon big drop when I get home tonight.
