New one here. Been rowing a drift boat for several years but finally went and bought a raft a few months ago to include some whitewater fun with my flyfishing. I got some family coming to town this Friday and wondering what Grizzly Creek down to Glenwood Springs is like. I read a thread on this forum regarding a recent trip and the put-in situation?? Whats the run like with the current flows? If decide to go, probably would do it this Friday. My skills are improving on the bigger stuff, did Westwater Canyon at 22K and just got back from the Main Salmon a few weeks ago so I feel somewhat comfortable, it just that unknown factor that still gets me on rivers that I have never ran. So any info would be greatly appreciated.

It's like WW without the Room of Doom. Or Skull. Or Sock. Or Funnel. Or any of the rapids. And without the tight canyon. It's like the first and last 5 miles of WW.

Maybe start at Shoshone?

Shoshone at this level is really fun. You can scout the whole thing from Grizzly creek with a bike in about 20 minutes. Grizzly creek on down is cake. It's just a matter of how far you want to go.

So Grizzly Creek down is pretty flat but if I want some splashies I should put in at the Shoshone Power Plant? Scouting from the bike path would be a good idea. I'm planning to float the Roaring Fork on Saturday to do some fishing and I usually run our shuttle with the bike. I imagine the bike shuttle would also work for the colorado also?

Yup. I'd not say flat but definitely easy. You can read and run from Grizzly down. I'm not sure if the hot pools are covered at 3k, but keep an eye for them on river left as you approach town. You can bike shuttle the rest of the canyon but it can be a ways. You may be able to find some help shuttling if you take out at the play park. There may be boaters there who're heading back up the canyon.
