Yampa at high water

Hi!
I have a Yampa trip june8-13...right now water is high! I have never run this river before and I have an oarswoman 2months with child on the trip. She is very experienced class IV rafter. Have any of you ladies either, been on the Yampa for high water, or any trip during early pregnancy? I am looking for helpful beta on rapids and pregnancy rafting.
Thanks so very much!!!!!

No one on our trip is pregnant, but we are running the Yampa trip May 29 - June 3. Happy to give any feedback if you like on how the river is running. email me at [email protected] if interested.

I guess I'm a little anxious for the trip. We are going on June 29, not May 29.

I can hardly comment on "pregnancy rafting" but its very easy to walk around Warm Springs....as long as she can find a place to pull over and pick you up....

Already a thread on high water Yampa:

I don't think 6 days will be necessary at whatever flows you are likely to experience. My guess is you are going to hit it pretty close to peak on June 8th. It should be back in it's banks by the time the end of June folks run it.

I hear dead cows floating in eddies is a good cure for morning sickness...

Any word about camping at Deerlodge? I have heard second hand that it is pretty much a quagmire.

Byennie,

We camped at the put-in and it was fine...lots of goose turds, no toilet paper supplied in the vault toilets (kind of BS for a $185 permit fee IMHO). I would camp away from the water if it is above 15,000 since you never know if you might wake up with your tent in water?

My trip report is posted on the Trip Planner forum...have fun!
