Good time to hit CB area creeks this summer?

We were the last week of June/first part of July last summer. With the big snow pack, OBJ was going nicely, Upper East was decent, but Daisy was reportedly snowed in still.

With the lower snow pack this year, what's the best window for these runs? Early to mid-June? I probably can't make it out until the third week of June. Will I be SOL by then?

I understand the variability of this kind of guestimation, but any ideas based on historical info. would be helpful. How about the Animas?

I would guess first and second weekends in June will be best, but that there would still be water the third weekend.

CB is weird. It is probably the coldest part of the state. I have been there second week of june two years in a row and gotten snowed on and low flows. Three years ago the same weekend we had the biggest flows I have ever seen for CB. In short, it's hit or miss. But there is bound to be something good running in colorado that time of year.
