Cataract TR

Just took out from Cat. There was about 34,000 cfs - good hits, plenty of time to move, and the claw is really steep at these flows...
With the low lake level: #31 is just starting to come out, and #30 has developed a great hole since I was there last. There was current at ~4-6mph until about mile 174 (2-3 miles above the bridge) with the lake at an elevation of 3616, then it slowed to 1-2mph the rest of the way to the river right take out.
And the cool part - we saw a black bear scrambling around on the sandstone just above the bridge. He looked sort of spooked and very out of place.
Happy run off season!
