Long draw is open!

After incessant calling and website checking of the forest service website it's finally open.

Now any flow reports from the fort Collins true? Not that it really matters, the washed up Front Range dad crew will be out tomorrow.

Would be nice to get a flow report as Long Draw is only putting out 90cfs

You'll be scraping through weird creek, but it'll float you. If you're worried about your boat, you can walk down along side Corral Creek and launch on the actual Poudre.

I'd expect a solid medium flow once in the canyon.

I think medium's optimistic with only 80 out of Long draw but it should be low but good enough. I'll likely be walking down Coral Creek. Weird Creek's not worth it at 80

I agree with Evan, the hike is nice and won't break your boat. I'm hiking. Sounds like it'll be the usual gate opening shit show up there.

There is likely sketchy wood in Prime Time with the lower flow.

Seriously, it was sketchy with water.

As of Saturday the BS rock gauge was just under two marks.
It looks like they're ramping up flows again out of long draw today, so should be going up.

Wood in Bonk, easy to avoid.
Prime time has wood at the bottom which can be snuck under far right.
One log towards the end of the rush which you should head left of.
