Poudre Narrows these days

I would like to know if it's possible to run Lower or Middle Narrows on Poudre at this "too low" level. Anyone is doing it these days? Is it still runnable and how does it look? Worth coming from Boulder area?

thanks...

I've heard its sitting around .5 feet on the rock. Thats too low in my opinion, especially in middle. My lower limit for the lower narrows is about .8 feet. There's a lot of water in the reservoirs still, so I wouldnt be surprised if they began to release sometime.

I've ran lower at least once a week for the last 4 weeks...As of last Thur, they are diverting a bit...so the 50-70cfs you see is after the D. The rock has been at .8-.9 every time I've been up there. Middle is too low...not that I haven't scraped down it at .8 though . Upper is fun and lower is at its best for taking narrows newbs down.

Not quite .8. It's .8 when it gets to about 100-110, 1 foot is about 130-140. The river above the North Fork has been 80-90 for a couple of weeks. Pineview/Bridges has been fun too the past couple of weeks. They are slowly turning down Joe Wright though. People in Greeley go turn on your shower and leave it on

If you didn't know I am in Greeley....getting ready to take a shower too I'll turn on all my faucets and lets plan on a run tomorrow Nah I don't know how you weather has been but its been rainy the last 2 days so no requests for h2o coming from here.

Last week the guage read 60-70 and when I went up to run the LN the rock was at .8....So I figured they were drawing out before the guage.

I'm heading up to the BigT in an hour to clean a log out then I'll probably head to the lower Gnarrows for a few laps.
