Flows on the rise - Ark - BV

Looks like it's going to be a powder day at staircase, Downtown and LoDo this afternoon. We got a bit of help from some rain up valley, and warm temps this week. 543cfs and on the rise! 73 and sunny today - come on down!!

Visual on BV Park Features @ 540cfs or so...

Here's a visual on 3 features from this am at +/- 540cfs or so. Should be as good as this or better this weekend with temps in the 70's today and tomorrow...
LoDo - Nice shoulder forming

Depends on your tolerance for tight squeezes. Commercial companies start running it around 300 cfs.....

I've ran a 13' cat down to 440. Other than a few tight spots, I'm sure 400 goes.
Oars take a bit more H2O than paddles.
