Up to 4330 now. Not likely to hold though. The storm moving through looks like it will taper off tomorrow. I'm good for a Friday morning launch if she holds water.

Unless it tanks overnight, I'm sprinting down there and we are gonna launch on Thursday for a two night "no frills" mostly self support trip. It has stopped raining for tonight...but its supposed to start again tomorrow so should stay up at raftable levels through the weekend.

I donít think it will run this year. You should decline your permit if you win. No reason to waste your $.

Was up there Sunday for a day run to Hoodoo RAP and it was great! Running about 1100 cfs. Peaked closer to 3000 earlier in the week. SherpaDave, I think it should run fine this year, snowpack is at about average.

The Upper Salt is the drainage that shows 74% of avg, but Hannagan Meadows, which generally is the most important site, is sitting at 105% of avg.
