Talyor flows

I'm thinking of running the Talyor river, I checked the flows and they are running 400-500. Anybody run it lately? Is it do able in a raft?

Taylor Flows

I was on the Taylor Cyn section (which includes the slot) July 4 weekend when the flows were 500+. There was a lot of raft activity below the slot at this level. I spoke with the bureau of reclamation about a week ago and was told that current flows would remain around 400 depending on "calls".

I did this run in a duckey and at 500+ the run was great.

This is a good level for rafts although a little scrapey, but the Taylor usually is.

Taylor Flows

The bureau of rec replied to my email regarding Taylor flows, below Taylor Park Reservoir. Here's a brief summary:
Release will remain at 400cfs through July, 350 for the first half of Aug and 300 for the second half of Aug. Unless something changes of course.
