Floating Arkansas- Stone Bridge to Salida East yesterday, a little shallow and rocky in spots but other than that, a good float.

Roaring Fork is still floatable.

Browns, Parkdale, Royal Gorge.

We bounced off a few rocks in Browns yesterday, but still worth doing.

whats the gorge like at these flows, been wanting to fire it up 4 awhile. Have guided my raft thru browns a few times as well as shoshone and a bunch of runs on the eagle. Worried about the commitment factor but i guess we could follow the commercial trips.

go look at eddy flower, the have the flows for the state.

Here are some ideas: the Arkansas (good from the top, a bit more water on Parkdale and the RG), the Cache la Poudre (Stevens Down), the Roaring Fork (Slaughterhouse down), the Colorado (Gore down), Clear Creek (lower stretches are better, below Kermits), The Gunnison (Gunny Gorge), Lake fork gunnison, the Taylor, The Eagle (low but doable), and the Durango town run on the Animas. I am probably forgetting something, and there are certainly other runs you could make happen depending on you tolerance for rocks and carries.
