To get you up to speed...
The Fluffy Muffin runs usually a few hours a day, but not all the time and variable conditions must collaborate to make the spot work (ie: Blue Mesa and Morrow Point must be releasing water...if only Blue is releasing, Morrow CAN back up and flatten the spot out). I have gotten skunked many times after a good long drive out. There is no guage. Water flow here is determined by energy demands in Phoenix...usually people are getting home after work and turning on all their wastefull appliances, so best chances of catching the Muff are between 3 & 5 pm. As the Res. is pretty full this year it is proving to be a good Fluff season (according to some guy from Gunny).
Senor Fluffy is about 1/4-1/2 mi. below Blue Mesa Res. on the Gunnison River.
Go west of Gunni on 50.... pass the end of Blue Mesa res. Just after the turnoff for the dam (right) you will be climbing a hill. Near the top of the climb look for large powerlines. Pull off, right. This is your only chance to get a view down the gorge. If you see a little white strip/foam pile about 1/2-1/4 mi down the canyon the muffin is in! If the water is placid, it aint. Dont go all the way down without looking unless you like hiking your boat alot.
Continue westward about 100 yards more to the Pine Creek trail on the right. At the parking area, hike down the 90+ stairs, put on, paddle down and enjoy a serenly tranquil (and quality) playboating experience. The waters friggin cold too! Playspot is river center...eddy service riv right. Hike out and up....this helps with the ice-water chills.
This is, in my gaper-ass opinion the best playspot in the state (at certain levels....it varies alot). But what do I know? I only throw phattily putrid misty-phenix-bunny 540's like totally consistent.
Does that answer your questions?
