Low water playboating

so as the water has started to drop I'm looking for a good playboating spot. I was wondering which is better at these flows; A-hole, October hole or the library hole in golden for getting loops in, not just spins all day long. I know that A-hole has that one loop spot but I was wondering what people thought of October hole and the library hole? Thanks.

I'd say A-hole and O-hole but things are getting grim quick.
If you are happy with spinning the O-hole usually lives up to it's name in October.

Salida, BV and Glenwood should offer some better late summer options if you are up for a drive.

There is lotís of water going though the October hole but itís not very good.
Itís a pity it runs high in July and august. We just need to get a back hoe into it and shift the rocks around for a redesign

Peter/David H - I haven't done much playboating in Lyons this year,but Oct hole looked different to me - it looks very sticky and unfun - I haven't played in it though so don't really know its quality. It seems like some stuff got moved around with the high water. What's A hole doing right now? Its been several weeks since I was there last and it was just super steep - good for arial moves but not a lot else...Just my opinion. I'm not a very good playboater, so what do I really know

It's not sticky not even a hole more like a slide. It's good for cartwheels and its deep so you can't hit bottom.
