Looking for some general flow info for May...

Hello,
Looking for ballpark flows (as in running or no go) for Crested Butte steep creeks, Black Canyon, Poudre (Big South and lower sections), Gore Canyon and other recommendations for some solid, clean class V boating. Looking at the last week in May or earlier... Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Dave

CB may be running or high, but could still be snowed in - you may have to hike or have snowmos. Black canyon releases are up to the dam masters and it's been running all winter, but dropping slowly this spring - milo will know better as the time comes around. The Big South gate will still be closed - it may be runnable, but will likely still have lots of snow and will require a hike in from the Park. Lower Poudre will be getting high - great times. Gore canyon may be stomping or medium. That time of year is great for CC Ark, Boulder creek, SSV, Frontrange stuff and lower elevation stuff. Tons of joints running, but maybe not the classics you've heard about. It'll be good. Check out boatin with joe on the trip planning forum when you get here and you'll have a good idea of some stuff that's running.
Joe
