Hows Siedels? Any portages or get out and pulling/dragging of the boat. The lowest I've done is 700, 400 seems real low.

400 is what I would call "get downable" I have personally rafted it as low as 200 cfs. If you are kayaking it is all good to go. If you have a raft I reccomend one under 13 ft and no rowing paddle boat only (r-2 is the best). At this level there are a couple of mandatory get out of your boat and low side through a slot moves. The most notable and dangerous is at the bottom of pinball. Sidels is a piece of cake. Like the others said I would wait untill it comes up. Seems like the poudre is running right now.

Long story short, the snow above treeline hasn't started melting yet, and there is no dam release...:

Everything is good to go but low for a kayak right now...don't know that I would recommend taking a raft anywhere above Browns until we start to see some runoff...
