Muddy Creek above Paonia Reservoir?

Was coming back from Aspen yesterday and saw a small 1/4 mile or so section of Muddy Creek a couple miles above Paonia Reservoir that looked like it was boatable. Class IV or V from the brief look I got at it. Can't find any info on it though. Anybody know anything about this stretch?

Ran that a couple years ago

There's a lot of private land and I got a couple of evil looks from land owners. Definitely Class IV with Class V consequences at higher flows. I'm guessing it was at 350 to 400 CFS. Lots of blasted rock shards with sharp edges.
And the Lord said, let there be whitewater. So on Friday, the 13th day of the month....

just run the 2/3 mile section that starts at the turnout just above the steep stuff. the more water the better. a little ways in there is a class vish part. kind of manky, but fast and fun.
