Taos Box & Mnt biking during Thanksgiving....need buddy

Greetings,

I'm from San Antonio and have plans to do a bunch of mountain biking in NM over Thanksgiving. I happened to notice that the Box is running at a decent level and have hopes that it remains through Thanksgiving.
I may be solo so I was hoping to find a few contacts that may be interested in joining up with me. I've run the LTB from anywhere from 1100-6000 cfs in the past.
I'd even love to find a few bikers to huck the Southern Boundary trail as an added bonus. I can be in the area from Nov 21 - 27th.
Are there any boaters on the Box during this season? If you are aware of locals or others that may be able to help me then please let me know.

Thanks so much!!

I would not count on riding S. Boundary around Thanksgiving. It might stay warm and melt the snow, but most of that trail is in the shade and the snow will not melt unless its really, really warm for the next 3 weeks. As for the flows, its really hard to say. I would guess this is some water Colorado owes TX or something and 500 cfs would be closer to what you could expect around Thanksgiving.

Thanks for the info. I was hoping that 600 cfs might be maintained judging the average daily cfs loss last month.
Never ridden the S. Boundary so I don't know what to expect. The info helps. I'll cross it off the list.

If it is running around 500 cfs is it worth it?

Everyone has a different defination of "worth it" but if you don't get a chance to be out here all the time, i say go for it. Just be ready for a longer day since the flows will not be moving as fast and the water on the Upper last weekend was already getting a little chilly. The bottom 5 miles will be actually kind of technical.

Does anyone know the reason behind the adnormally high flow rates for the Box? Wondering if it is dam release related or precipitation related. Sure be nice for my trip planning.

Any flow is good flow considering that Texas is dry as a bone!
