Numbers at current level?

What's it like? Did Upper Mish at 2.9 last weekend and had done Upper Clear Creek from Dumont to Idaho Springs at 525 week before that. Any comparison to those?

You'll have no problem with numbers. Easy to scout everything, if you care to.

More large boulders in the channel, but more of a pool-drop character. Much larger eddies and slower water than Mish or Clear Creek.

Upper Mish

Hi there. I saw you ran Upper Mishawaka on the Poudre recently? It is currently flowing at 430 cfs. What was it when you ran it? I have run it at 1,800 cfs but that was a few years ago. I was going to run it in a week or so and I am hoping to get more info on what it is like at low water. We were hoping to put 7 people in a 14 foot boat. Were you scrapping bottom a lot? Any beta you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks much.

Not 100% sure on the cfs - I pay more attention to the rock report number than cfs, but I think it was 800ish. 2.9 on the rock when I ran it. This was the first time I had done it, so don't know what it's like at current level. But, at 2.9, only a couple spots would be a bit shallow for a raft, I'd think, and all rapids are easily scoutable from the road when setting up shuttle. I'm sure it was a lot harder at 1800 than 800.

You need to get your flows for the Poudre here: Poudre Rock Report

the cubic foot per second readings are not accurate.

I have only ran Mish around 3.0 ft. I don't know the minimum for a raft, but I would certainly be cautious under 1.5 ft. I know Bridges goes at pretty low flow...
