I was wondering the same thing. Looking at the East gauge makes me think it will run this weekend. Anyone have a visual on obj/daisy?

The East came in today or yesterday and is clean from what I've heard. The Upper Slate is low, but runnable. OBJ is likely too low for most, but might come in better as the week goes on.

The upper east is fun! a bit low at the put in, but picks up right around the first bend.

The slate is a good low and obj is low in the evenings. There is no sense in name dropping but lets just say the boys were coming out as we were going in. That doesn't mean its rad, but its getting run.

It will be days at best untill it picks up more water and we won't be hearing how low it is. the lips of the falls on obj are scrapey, I did not run obj on this trip. I need a touch more water to ease the technicality of the lips and scrapes, but not so much that my fat ass screams past the eddys.


days at best.

Was there yesterday and got in a few laps. It should be at healthy medium flows this weekend.

Thanks to all of the locals cleaning up the run, it looks cleaner than ever.

The slate was pretty low. We didn't bother going up to check. Snowpack looked real good.

Sturges was filming for BBC and too bad they didnt schedule just one week later...they were running it ballz LOW and left just as runoff fired up......as for now (6/4) OBJ is flowing a good medium and getting pushy, still a scrape here and there but good to go...daisy is in...it's all in...and cb task force wood team has done some serious damage to daisy and obj, those creeks are cleaner than they've ever been....

OBJ race next weekend should be tits
