the gauge is climbing. the only diversions that should be taking water off the river are fort collins and greeley (maybe), so the gauge at the canyon mouth should be close to actual flow in the river. at 424 cfs, i bet it's close to boatable at a scrapey level.

edit more than a third is coming from the north fork.

the poudre is at 1'.

It is rock boat season at least, and I'll bet you could run sections of the main canyon as well. bridges, pineview etc...

Filter plant has an extra 80-100 in it and is good to go.

tpatterson,

I am around and looking to paddle often, what level of boating do you feel comfortable running?

Paulk

I am going up at 430 today if you are thinking cold snowy middle lower lap.

I wanted to GORE with you guys the other day.

I can do that now, early season, under a thousand with abnormally warm days on low snow pack years. I'm that good.

EDIT: unrelated, this came up in a video search on youtube. I had not seen it.

A snowy middle/lowers does sound lovely, unfortunately I'm stuck in Denver until Sunday at the earliest. May end up settling for some hep c in trestle wave. Good to see this late season moisture up on Cameron.

I might be getting out on the Poudre Sunday and will be looking to paddle as often as possible. Bob, Paul, whoever, hit me up!

Nice spike in flows the last two days. The gate at the Greeley diversion (below Bridges take-out) was closed the other day so I assume they were diverting some though portage was easy on river left if you want to extend a Bridges run by 2 miles down to Gateway take-out.

Bob/Paul/Skeen,

I'm comfortable at class III-IV, though wouldn't mind a warm up lap on an easier section since it'll be my first time out this year. If anyone is going later today or tomorrow let me know!
