It was pretty fun once we hit the canyon, some decent rapids w/ a couple minor holes to avoid. The water is at a good level right now for consistent little waves all the way to the take out. There are even some good places to try a little surfing. Some deadfall on the edges and a tree down river right about 3/4 of the way down (I think it has been there for a long time though) but all easily avoidable. It was a little over 1000 when we did it. Only 3 miles and close to home for me so I like it!
If you're coming from steamboat then right as you take that sharp corner at wood's landing you turn right and park near the gas station at the bridge that is the take out. Then you take a right out of that lot and go across the bridge and down the road about 3 miles. On the right you will see a sign for Jelm river access. It is a dirt road that forks left, right and straight. If you keep going towards the outhouse down to the river that is your put in. Left and right are private property but there are signs. When are planning on going?
Thanks! That seems easy enough. I might try to go later afternoon June 20th. Headed to my in-laws ranch over in Cherokee Park and we go through Laramie to get their. How long does it take to run it? What the lowest water you can do it at?
