Lower Blue too Low?

The Lower Blue says it's at 350 & eddyflower says 400 is minimum.

Is it worth doing in a kayak at 350?

Been doing Cemetery on the RF & Shoshone a lot. Just looking for something a little different.

Thanks!

probably not worth it for the drive, look for spikes with all the rain though. This run will rise again in the late summer/early fall and is awesome scenery. If you did go it will be very shallow but doable.

Lower Blue summary from weekend

For those of you following this post:

Thogan was right. We had several spikes from the rain over the weekend. Releases from Green Mountain got up to 500 cfs and were up and down over Saturday and Sunday.

We are back to 350 cfs in the Lower Blue this morning, though (July 30).

I don't have any new projections, yet. We're waiting for the weather to settle out.

Best,
Kara

Thanks for the replies!

I was there Saturday morning and was glad the level came up overnight! 510 was pretty bony... Wouldn't want to do it any lower. It was fun for a change, at 510, tho.
