Poudre Rock Report

Does anyone know when the Poudre Rock Report will start up for the season? It is still showing report for Labor Day weekend.

And is the report a visual driveby by someone up in the canyon?

Big thanks for whoever it is! Seems the guage in the canyon is not as reliable as "the rock"!

Not sure when it'll start up. It is a visual gauge that a
handful of people report on.

I'd call it 0.5 Thursday evening when I floated bridges. I think
I've seen signs in town of folks up on the Narrows so it's
probably it'll start up in the next few weeks. I'll probably have
to try out something again this weekend

The canyon gauge is reliable, but has 2 diversions you have
to account for that have no user readable gauges on it
(plus you have to subtract out the N. Fork for runs above
Filter). Based on readings lately, I think they're pulling
~40-80cfs out of the lower diversion (ditch) and nothing
out of the upper one.

Lower Narrows is a bit bony but doable, but Upper Narrows is the most channelized and enjoyable (minus the inbetween mank piles). I'd be interested in a quick jaunt up tomorrow afternoon. Need to get my river legs back.

The Poudre usually starts rising about the middle of May.

I beg to differ.... 2006 it was 2.5 on the gauge rock by April 30th. If it stays cool things might hold out until May but if it gets above 70 all hell is going to break loose. Looks like Cameron got a bunch of snow in the last few nights, but snowpack is still down. Pray for snow and cool weather otherwise this year is going to blow harder than A-1 office girls.

The A-1 office is in the basement of the Mish. Call Robin, he'll make you an appointment.
2006? Where have you been the last 3yrs? I was talking about the norm not the exception.

Probably 0.6 today 5;30ish, maybe 0.7 if you want to be really
generous.

Bob, didn't see your post until we got back else I'd have shot you an email letting you know when to meet. If you want to run Bridges Sunday let me know. The biggest issue right now is you cannot run Disney due to a log that's wedged halfway through the drop.

Talking to a friend who skied today, Zimmerman had 22" of new snow out of this storm.
