Lower south boulder creek - spring fever

Looks like they just bumped up releases out of gross res into LSBC to 264 cfs. Low, but boatable. Anyone interested in a friday run? I've got spring fever big time, and this warm weather has me itching to get on the water.

I'd be down for either the hike out at bridge drop, or running down to the dam.

I spoke with a Denver water guy yesterday and he noted that they are likely to release for a while for metro water needs.

I missed it last year, but sounds like it was worthy for a winter run.

Ian, that is too low to run the bridge drop w/o a seal launch, i think the min for that is over 325 and that is the best drop in there. If they bump up the flow I might be in. I would say hike out at the bridge it makes for a way easier shuttle and you don't have to deal with the people at the bottom, you don't have to run more mank and put another crack in the boat, and it is a good workout plus a scenic hike.
