Pearce Ferry

Does anyone have any info on what is happening with Pearce Ferry? I know that the jetboats are still uprunning it, but it is continuing to get bigger and bigger, and I can't imagine that they will keep it up too much longer. Are they talking about putting the road back in? THe "buzz" around the bars in Flagstaff this weekend is that they are talking about blowing it up. THis would be very surprising to me.

Anyone have any info? Any good stories?

Check this one out:

I dunno - I thought it was pretty easy. those who want to blow up rapids are worthless and weak. I don't really care that its artificially created by the backwater of lake mead. you reap what you sow.

We didn't run right because that's the route the jetboats use, they can't see you coming, and it seems a losing battle between a raft and a jb. Left caught us a bit offguard, but no problems. I ended up running it like a rollercoaster, (banked high and high speed) tipped sideways pretty hard, but just shot out of it. I would recommend starting to accelerate towards the rock on the left run, so you've got some right momentum going into it, and keep pulling right before you have to straighten out. We started pulling a bit late and could have kissed the wall.

I'm sure there will be a lot of talk for quite a while. RRFW has a lot of info on it. There's also predictions that the lake will back up over it again with the higher water flows. I'd like to borrow their crystal ball, kind of like the weather forecasts.
