Numbers at 225cfs

Sun broke through mid-afternoon and we got mid 50's. Real nice ELFing at 225 with the lines defined and fluid. Ran 4 thru 7, walked the mank/slot at 5. Had a couple sweet boof to carves and some moves/strokes that happen in tight low water and bring a smile. Gorgeous day, nice level, fave run, good friend, refreshed for the week.

We didn't get on the water until after 2. Went nice and slow and took 2.5 hours to do the 2.5 miles.

The boat chute at the Silver Bullet was a little boney, but we managed to have a good time...

I would love to seem some more pics of the Bullet at lower flows. Really any rapids on the Ark at low flows interest me.

Here's a link to some pics and a TR of Number 4 thru 7 at about 200cfs. Still 225ish in there now. There are good fluid lines on this section at these levels.

Here is a link to my facebook album for this season. Everything in it so far is low-water pics of the Ark. Everything should be pretty well labeled, but let me know if you have any questions...

The diurnal cycle is increasing but they just cut the Twin Lakes flow by 50cfs. That may get us under 200, at least for part of the day. The paddle into #1 is pretty scrapey at less than 200. Pine Creek is still good but I'll be hitting 4 thru 7 exclusively at these flows.

Bummer, we were heading that way to paddle on Saturday. Not seeing the change in the Salida or Wellsville gauges yet? Wondering if the Royal Gorge is still good to go?

I don't know the lower reaches of the Ark at low water like I do above BV. Logan, or some others could tell you. 4 to 7, maybe a couple laps, is good ELFing at these flows.
