Ran it in a 14' SB raft last fall at the same level, we had to drag in a couple places but it was doable. We had 2 people, a cooler, 2 giant dogs and one medium dog weighing us down.

Really!? I agree with Schutzie. If you know anything about water management in Colorado, you must know that this section will rise later in the summer. As the Roaring Fork and Eagle drop, the Releases from Green Mtn, Williams Fk and Wolford will increase to meet the water rights needs downstream.

I'm sorry for ranting, but this has been covered in many threads already. I'm getting a little tired of seeing Upper C flow related threads every other day.

I ran it a couple weeks ago at 455 in a 16' raft. It's fine.

Its a day on the river! It will be great! With that said, follow the main flow and look ahead and you will be fine. Hot tube springs is in too and and will feel great.

Ran it in a 14' cat at 525 and hit in acouple spots, but could have been paying closer attention.. Prolly a bit boney at 496 but doable..

Man people get kinda grumpy on this site and I dont know why!? That is what this section of this site is for, is asking questions and learning! If you dont have interest in the thread, then dont say anything!
