Dewey Bridge to Moab Beta

Can anyone give me an idea of how the rapids are running at about 10,000 cfs? I think that is about what it is running now. I have run it a few times but never in June. Thanks in advance. Also, campsite info would be great. It's been a while.

OK I'll give you some info but not the detail you probably want. I haven't run it at 10,000 but I did it earlier this year at 3K and have had friends do it at much higher. The rapids are on curves. There are some rocks on the outside of the bends and the river is constricted. All of that adds up to some "big" waves at higher flows - which is what my friends have reported. I don't see them getting washed out - just bigger. They were Class 2- when I ran it.

My recon went like this: pretty run of course; lots of birdlife; some interesting architecture along the way, 99% flat-water; and what was really disappointing is I didn't see much in the way of camping. What camping there is would probably be grabbed by outfitters. There are of course developed campsites along the river road if you wanted to stay at those.

the rapids from onion creek down are easy class II/ III - wave trains at most watch out for some pushy eddy lines. the right side of whites rapid has a big hole at the top but it is easy to miss. there is good free camping at onion creek and pay camping at big bend.

Thanks for the info. That is exactly what I needed. I have people in duckys that are new and dogs riding on rafts so I just wanted to be prepared.
