If it stays up, anyone want to do a Monday #s run? Buddy of mine wanted to go then but it would be his first time down there and I haven't boated that section in a while, so would rather have someone along who remembers the lines...

Edit: Just checked and it is at 650 on the numbers now... low but still do-able (but yeah, I'm one of those idiots that will paddle almost anything with water in it, no matter how low)

Yea the upper BV hole is off the hook!!!!! I had to get in for a 2nd session!! It is still here - this is real water!!

I would think that it will stay above 1000 up here through at least sat and over 1000 in the gorge for a couple more days.

Right now a storm is brewin over the mtns.... I sure hope it rains more...

I just finished running the numbers. The put in gauge said about 950 cfs, but it was definitely rising during the run. Water is slightly brown but not bad at all. Great run at this level.

I also hit the upper BV hole this morning and it was ridiculous. The pile is very steep and gives up some huge loops, without hitting the bottom! The surfers left shoulder is also great for some blunts and what not, just make sure you surf back into the pile to stay into the hole!

If anyone wants to boat im down, just PM me. Surfs up!
