Bailey NOW! 471 cfs and rising

The tunnel is cranking. 471 cfs and rising. They are testing the tunnel, not sure how long the flow window will be.

I am ready to roll from Denver now.

Call me if you can meet up now or before noon.

Get it while you can. They will probably shut it off for the weekend.

Wish I could get there. I got stand-by this week so no kayaking for me.

Lucky bass-terds!

Just talked to Denver Water, flows are going up to 500, and then ramping back down to 150 early this afternoon. If you go now, you might catch the window, but check the gauge this afternoon if you are heading out.

Awesome day! Denver water turned on the tunnel to 500+ cfs from 10am to 11am. It takes it takes a couple of hours for the water to get from the tunnel to bailey (12-1PM?). We put on around 1:00pm and paddled the bubble all the way down. Felt like 500-600, nice and fluffy. Tons of debris and small branches all the way down and chocolate milk brown. One big ass log delicately hanging on to a rock a little ways above first falls. Will likely go into first falls with higher flows.

Rallied a crew of 6 out of bed, out of class, and out of work to hit it! So much fun for early season flows.

Check out the tunnel flow spike. Pretty sure we got it at the top!
