...gunny playpark flows=conditons....

....so far it has seen 2600cfs and it was a bit thumpy....the flows were about 14-1500cfs the day they shifted some stuff and dredged the pool out....14-1800cfs is nice, soft and mellow for intermediates....18-2200cfs is most likely the optimum flow....a bit more aggressive, more retentive and surgy...really good shit....at 22-2600cfs+ the hole was a thumpy wave hole with a "speed-wheel" pocket on surfers right....tuff trying to get a breath of air between thumps....better than good eddy service...you dont have time to catch your breath before the eddy "puts" you back in for more action....watch for wood if the water is getting dirty or brown....don't forget to hit the TAYLOR it rarely has these good flows.... continuous techy 3+ish creeky style.....cottonwood not open yet....jrRANGER420cb...will post info on higher flows as we get them... i wannna watch a sicko go off in our hole!!!....

higher flows

...missed the 3000-4000cfs range....but overheard some heavies saying that it bottom hole was surgy and thrashy....top hole really good-NO eddy service though....yesterday afternoon at nearly 5k the top wave looked nice, the bottom looked munchy...it looked a bit "flatter"...meaning the foam pile.... i was solo and concerned about gettin' jousted by some fukin tree...you cant see up river or your buddies sittin in the eddy about 15ft away while you "surf"....deep trough....you need a spotter on the shore with "whoops' or a whistle...waited about 1/2 hour for spectators or dog owners or even a boater...no dice...no surf....no flatspins...no thrashings....gunny playpark parking lot is under ankle deep water.... hope to get some thrashings in today...it's fukin dumpin here...FLATSPINmaster420CB...
