Gore playpark at higher water?

In the last few days pumphouse has gone from 1200cfs to over 2000cfs. We have only been to the gore playpark between 800 and 1200cfs where it is more of a hole and I am curious if it is any good at higher water. Has anyone been up there recently to check it out? Has it waved out yet? We have just been going to the glenwood playpark recently which has been good, but I'm curious about gore. Thanks!

New wave

Can't wait to see a Vail fishing guide get a drift boat sideways in there and dump a couple of customers. No tip for that day!

Awesome! It still looks pretty nice! Could you take a picture one of the next times that you go?

Probably won't make it today since it is nuking at copper and I just slapped a new neck gasket on my dry suit. I will update this post when I get back to it.

Sick! Nice space godzilla that was huge! It looks sweet at this level, definitely a better hole than it is at 1000cfs when I have been there. It was forecast a couple of days ago to go up to 3000cfs in the next week or so, so fingers crossed!
