Whats running?

I need to get in the boat this weekend to do some trianing for an upcoming trip. What's running withing 4-5 hrs of Denver?

I usually would go to gore for spring training, but the water coming out of green mtn res is super low, so its probably iced / too low.

Does barrel springs have water in it? Shoshone looks to be around 600-700?

What about the upper taos box? Don't know the gauges too well, AW said lower 300's. Too low?

I've run the royal gorge down to 350 in spring, looks like folks are running it too.

I guess there is westwater too. Anything I am missing in the class III-V range that is in now?

i was also thinking about the upper taos box for this weekend too. maybe the daytime temps will bump flows a little. even if not, i'm on the cusp of desperation boating. a friday night rally for a saturday mission sounds fun.

3.5 laps on Shoshone today. Fun if slow level. Another 200 or so would be great.

Westwater is good.

Been wondering about Gunny Gorge, but suspect there are still ice bridges in there.

Anyone have any idea on Cross Mountain Gorge yet?

Wow, just looked through the options, and there aren't many.

Shoshone
Westwater
Parkdale/Royal Gorge (possible Pine Creek laps?)

I bet Cross Mountain is in....

Surprised the Denver standby Waterton is too low (129 cfs!)

Upper Taos Box is too low now too (287 cfs)

Pilar/Racecourse is in, as is low water LTB.

There is enough water to run the Gunny Gorge, but not sure I would trust the road/ice conditions...

that's all I could come up with.

boat

Ahhh grasshopper, you must be patient during these anxious and despairing times. Wait for it and it will come. But if you must, 13 hours to put in for canyon section on south fork of Payette...
