Does anyone know if the Park still imposes a 600 cfs max? It says nothing about that on their website: https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/rivertrips.htm

What exactly does the 600 max mean? When you put on it has to be < 600? 600 in the last 24 hours? 600 when the permit is issued?

Flow on the gauge @ Springdale can't have exceeded 600 in the previous 24 hours, otherwise they won't issue the permit. I think the rangers have some latitude here (they'd probably be ok with a peak at 602...) but then these are NPS employees, and they receive precisely zero reward for painting outside the lines.

My biggest tech tip for this trip is to bring the following items for boat patching.

1. Dry pack towel
2. Small Camp stove
3. bitchothaine
4. Gorilla tape
5. Tools to take the seat assembly out of your boat.

It is very easy to crack a boat in the first six miles. When this happens, you want the tools to get a solid dry patch on the boat.

My trip was in 2009 the same weekend of the mega epic where the two homeboys cracked their boats, tried to hike out and had to be rescued. The result was more illogical regulation to access.

Cheers! ~ B

For the record, they didn't crack their boats and they didn't try to hike out...

Does anyone have beta on the Deep Creek put in option? Specifically, exactly where to put in and the access to get there to take Deep Creek into the Narrows?

My understanding, gleaned from friends that live there and have gone in that way, is that you will be trespassing regardless of where you put on. There are degrees of it -- some longer, some shorter -- but there is no way to get on Deep Creek that doesn't cross private land.
