220/cfs 4/11/17
700 cfs (I think that's what it was) 9/27/16


Canyon Narrows Big Hole Strainer

220 cfs 4/11/17

2 strainer locations just above the big bend and the other right in the canyons most narrow spot just above the big hole below the big bend.

If get them both, which one should be first to prevent log jam?...

Added some new pics of Canyon Big Bend Strainer 5/9/17 at around 320 cfs

If you're planning to boat these guys at these early lower flows it may be a good idea to at least scout them and maybe take a chain saw.

If you do boat them, let us know.

Flows were raised yesterday from the winter flow of 220 to 330 so it may be in the 330-500 or so range in the coming days...

Looks so much different at those flows. The second one is a big bummer, thanks for the heads up.
