4160 cfs after storm in Pueblo

Not sure how long the water will hold, but it is huge after the big storm we had tonight. It jumped from about 230cfs to 4,160 cfs. Just thought I'd give everyone a heads up.

Thanks man.

A bunch of us are planning on the Gorge tommorow. If we change our minds the park sounds fun.

Well, the levels are already going down just above 2K now...keep your fingers crossed that there was a good amount of rain upstream and maybe we'll see some of it around here in the form of a dam release. Whatever happens, happy paddlin'

We did the gorge with 14 ppwc paddlers. At 650 it's still a good time.

Sounds like fun...with all the rain they had to release a chunk of water from the Pueblo Dam and since noon it has been around 1200cfs. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get away with my boat today. Maybe tomorrow.

Not sure how we missed these increased flows, we did the gorge on Saturday and it was 580 cfs. Still, it was pretty sweet and we were both pleasantly surprised. Sunshine was manky and technical and I thought was harder than at normal flows. In general the whole run took on a more creeky feel but still maintained its level of difficulty.

Fun Fact: Watching the commercial rafts get pinned in Sunshine was funny as hell.

Downside: the paddle out sucked ass.
