Timing of snow melt?

So my sister tells me that the Eagle is running so high she can bearly sleep.

I was planning on being in state from May 15 - June 15 to catch the best water.

In general and considering how things are flowing this year, do I need to come earlier?

It is my intent to do daily class III-IV kayaking and class III-V rafting.

You are probably planning very well, sometimes May 15th is a little too early, but if it keeps warming up like it is you will have a great month in colorado for class III, IV Kayaking. For rafting you will find some good stuff on the arkansas river around the second week of June and later into July. Enjoy...we'll see you on the river.

Just checking in on this one again.

I know this is not the best source for flow info, but the local news (in CO) is saying get your whitewater boating done early this year.

I just want to make sure I don't miss the flows as I did last year.

Any revised persectives?

Thanks

there will be plenty of water from may 15th to june 15th. it has been a warm march and the lower elevation snow has been melting, but there is still plenty of snow pack up in the high peaks. imo you don't need to come out earlier.

cheers!

Yakrafter, I'll have a week of paddling from May 15-21 if you want to get together to run some IV-ish stuff.
