Yampa May 23

My friend drew a Yampa permit for Wednesday May 23, planning a 5 day trip. Any guess on what the flows might be like this year? None of us have been down before, let me know if you are interested in going, we will probably have room and would appreciate any advice on logistics!

What will flows be? In a word...crap!!! what little snow there is it is fading fast. I put on the 24th. Was there in '09 (i think) and it was over 20,000. The water was over the picnic tables at the put-in. If it is 3,000 I think we'll be lucky. Regardless, still an awesome trip.

I think this is the web site for current Yampa flows at the put in. You will have more than enough for a great trip, don't worry.

Better site for flows

More accurate the closer you get, but still has value
