Palisade Fish ladder wave is in

With the new fish ladder under construction in Palisdade & almost complete... a wave has formed at the very bottom. It is not as retentive as it looks but better than nothing. Basically only front surfing at the level it was at yesterday which was 1950cfs South Canyon wave flow. It does have a nice eddy return service to boot.... Bring your longer boat & it should help you stay on the thing. There were five of us in basically play boats & it was tuff to catch a very long ride..... Please stay off the fish ladder itself & hang in the water because some of the workers are being snippy about us being there in the day. Don't want to give them any fuel to totally kick us out. In the evening after the workers have left it doesn't seem to be as much of an issue. In two weeks it will be gone for good though at big flows we are hoping that at the bottom of that gradient something else might show up. Please use your common sense when parking out there & get off the road.
Enjoy while it lasts.
