Black Canyon Stoke

Here are some pics of a trip last weekend, and something to show that sean lee is indeed sicker than you: The Next Horizon Line: Black Canyon

600 is a bit low but still worthy of a sick weekend of paddling in a beautiful place, so get out there and get you some!

is that rock Sean hit the reason most the 20 footer doesn't get run much? (other than being a big techy 20 footer)

Looks so sick. Can't wait till I can get in there.

Last year rolf said it felt shallow (that was at 830 cfs) and then sean hit it pretty hard (600cfs) I kinda had a feeling like rolf that I knew there was a rock but it wasn't very hard hit. I ask christian if he hit anything or felt anything and he said no (that was at 720 cfs). I think it is good to go but that you have to boof out and hard to the right, with the added flow hopefully nobody will hit this next weekend.

Stoked! I'm super bummed because I've always dogged that run until the last year or so when I realized the true awesomeness. Now I'm stuck in texASS without the opportunity. Get after the best/only overnight wilderness mission in CO!

Flow will likely be ramping down this weekend:

The Bureau of Reclamation will be increasing the release from Crystal Reservoir by 200 cubic feet per second (cfs) from 1600 cfs to 1800 cfs on Monday, October 4 at 6:00 a.m. Releases at Crystal Reservoir are being increased in order to accommodate the Colorado Division of Wildlife's annual trout census work on the Gunnison River. After completion of the trout census on Thursday, October 7, releases will be returned to 1600 cfs. The final release rate of 1600 cfs at Crystal Reservoir will be maintained until further notice.
As of today the Gunnison Tunnel is diverting 1000 cfs and flows in the Gunnison River through the Black Canyon are around 600 cfs. After the change on Monday, Gunnison Tunnel diversions should still be around 1000 cfs and flows in the Black Canyon should be around 800 cfs. River flows will return to 600 cfs after completion of the trout census. Current flow information is obtained from provisional data that may undergo revision subsequent to review.
