Beta on Browns?

I was riding S Mountain yesterday and the Arkansas was running a bit murky. Looked like there might be enough flow to run Browns. Any beta?

The Nathrop and Parkdale gages aren't online yet (seasonal operation only) but here's your beta:

ARKANSAS RIVER NEAR WELLSVILLE (ARKWELCO)

Looks like it's nearly 800 cfs at Wellsville, downstream of Salida, right now (3/19/19). Not bad for March and makes me think they're drawing down Twin Lakes before the big runoff. I'd expect Brown's is about 750 and Parkdale may even be around 850. Get out the dry suit, neoprene gloves and go have fun!

As Andy has said, it’s good to go. There is no ice in browns canyon.

Pine creek through number 3 are good to go also, with ice on the sides. 4-miners is ice free and super fun. Milk run is clear and everything below salida is good to go also.

600 at numbers

750 at browns

800 in the royal gorge.

Ran it R-3 in my 12' NRS raft this past Saturday. Beautiful day for it! Only saw one IK all day, otherwise had the river to ourselves. Planning on Saturday and Sunday this coming weekend. Drop a DM if you want to join us.

Iíll be down in the Canon City area for the next week or so, doin some work on my parents house, for them, and will probably have at least some amount of time to get on the river. If anyone is lookin for somebody to boat with, specially the lower Ark, hit me up! I used to guide full time in the Gorge, and would be in my 11í Cat.

Ran Browns yesterday, awesome to be back on that river this season, and got to boat with a couple other Buzzards to.
