Floating Desolation Canyon Green River, Utah

I just wanted to know if anyone has floated Desolation Canyon within the last month? I am kind of concern about the cfs flow of the river. Please tell me about your adventure.
Thanks,
RTI

Right now it's under 20k, which is easy. Who knows what it will be soon.

If you go to YouTube and search on Desolation Canyon or Joe Hutch rapid you will see lots of different videos of the river at different levels. There are quite a few videos in the 20k range.

Also, use the search feature here on the Buzz. There have been a lot of threads concerning Deso lately. I'm sure you could find several trip reports.

Flow will be fine. From what I have seen in two trips on the river, it is more difficult as levels drop.

River will be moving fast, makes for short days. Last year we did 5 nights at this flow, with 1 layover camp. We are planning for 4 nights this year with a layover. We just had too short of days.
