Eagle river clear from below Dowd chutes?

Has anyone been down? Looks like it will be high enough for an oarframe this weekend. I would drop in by the church near Home Depot and run through the Edwards Mile to the wastewater plant if it is clear of trees. Thanks!

I kayaked it from avon to the edwards ww plant on wednesday along with 2 oar frames and they were fine. Nothing personal from this year above there but I have seen kayakers going through eagle-vail.

Gremlin,

Where do you put in by the church? i never even knew there was an opportunity there (been running this for 17 years !) the access at Bob the Bridge in Avon is kinda a pain in the ass to get the trailer down there. Thaks for any input !

Minimum flow for this stretch is 800 cfs (for me- 14' cat). It is now at a prime flow. At 2500 gets nice, fun and burly thru Edwards.

No trailer access by the church but a nice steep bank to slide the boats down and a fenced concrete structure on the bank to tie to with a small eddy. It adds a couple miles of action that begins immediately and you get to hit Bob!
