New strainer Shelly's

Two thirds of the way down shelly's cottages where the old weir drop feature used to be. Just up stream is a riverside strainer that has fallen in over the last two days.
Eddies river right upstream of hazard
Just stay heads up and all is fine.

Ran Shelly's today and yea that wasn't there last Saturday. Let me know if you guys want to work on getting it out. I have a chainsaw we can use. Lot of branches on that thing.
Still wanna know how you contortionists get under the foot bridge btw!

shelly's conditions and flow?

Thinking of hitting Shellys tommorow. Never done the run. Is there anything in particular (besides this tree) that I need to be aware of? Also there seems to be some discrepancy in flows. Mountainbuzz / AW shows flows at 688 cfs, while Riverbrain shows 267 cfs... quite a difference. Any thoughts into which is correct? Thanks.

Also if log is still there, may be able to lend a hand depending on timing.

267CFS, which is on the low side, Detail Graph

If the water holds we have few paddlers meeting at the October hole at 10:00am to run Shelly's down.

Mike,
Upriver from the strainer and about 1/4 mile after the creek meets HWY 36, there is a crude foot bridge that with higher flows will not be passable underneath. The land owner has posted no trespassing signs on the banks. I portage on the HWY 36 side and put in just past the green gate. Easy to see and eddy out beforehand.

Thanks for the heads up. So these people put in an unpassable foot bridge and then says you can't portage, WTF.

Pretty much, although it seems the foot bridge is the only access they have to their house. They park their vehicles on the 36 side and walk across.
I may be down to run shelly's and apple valley with you guys tomorrow if that's ok.

Any chance I could join a group tomorrow or Sunday? I just moved out here from the east coast and am pretty excited to get on some of these continuous colorado creeks.
