Books and website...

Colorado Rivers and Creeks, also Whitewater of the Southern Rockies, (the bible) this has five states, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, and New Mexico. Any kayak/raft shop should have these, eddyflower.com on the website side. Here is the link for Colorado. These are just a few, utilize your local paddle shop for more info. Hope this was some help...

CRC II and the New Testament are both good but more geared toward kayakers (and sandbaggers, but that's another story...). For rafting, a great book, if you can get your hands on it, is Western Whitewater. This guidebook covers all the major rivers in the State that you'd want to raft, and for many has descriptions of individual rapids in the narrative.
