LTB and La Junta Sections of Rio Grande

I might be in Angelfire for kids downhill bike race Memorial day weekend and looking to paddle a day or two.

Any predictions on LTB levels? Has it peaked or will it be crankin up as we get closer to Memorial day?

Also, anyone ever paddled the La Junta section between the boxes? Eddyflower rates this a Class III run.

Thanks for the input.

Should be crankin. Snowpack is similar to three years ago when it was in the 4,000 range over Memorial Day weekend.

Ran it last week (1600 cfs), after doing Red river...most of it II with about 2 short sections of class III. The area is very pretty.
