Now its at almost 3000! I think you'll be rather lucky to find a stable boatable flow. At some point, not long after the rain stops, its going to drop very fast, and rain on the swell doesn't have a reputation for being consistent. Even if it keeps raining, it will likely fluxuate somewhat in the meanwhile. Still, I hope you guys can get an awesome run in!

Hey I'm heading down from SLC tonight to check out the dirty devil-rumor has it it ran at 15,000-20,000 today. Its class 2 at low flows but is supposedly a really cool run. Call me if you head out this way. I've run the Boxes 3 times in the last two years all at higher flows and would love to get on it Sunday if things calm down and look right. The Fremont and muddy have gone bonzo at 2500 to 4000 cfs but are both super cool if at manageable flows. Be wary of the gauges, some could be off.

Peace

Sam

We actually did not make it. Looking to see if the flows stabilize? Sometime this week we may get to go in.
Creekin' in D-town has been good but catching a window of actual low enough user-friendly flow has been hard since everything got big. Kind of a weird problem to have. It's dumping again now now so who knows? If we get to the boxes I will surely give a report. Johnny
