Will OBJ still be running this weekend?

Is there still water over there, or is it done for the season?

OBJ at super low flows will rip your boat a new one in an instant. The slides are super sharp.

Doubt it will jump back up this weekend to good flows, but stranger things can happen. There is still some snow up there, maybe a few warm days can get her back in again.

I ran it this past weekend when the slate was around 500ish, and I felt like that was about as low as I would want to run it. Put a 14" gash in my nomad.
