Hey there steve,
I actually went all the way up to the top put-in today and it was super bony, not even murky water. Looked like the kind of water they would use to brew coors or something, cold, clear and full of elk shit. There wasn't much snow up there either. I rode my motorcycle as far as i could before closed gates and no low snow at all. There could be a later runoff from the high stuff, but...I guess you could scrape down if you wanted. The bottom looked just as shallow and clear. Hope she comes up.
see you at escalante, I think that has a better chance of running,
