Delta 2 Escalantie, CO

How long should I plan to go from Confluence Park boat ramp in Delta, CO to the Escalantie boat ramp? I am not fishing and will oar though the slow water (so the whole trip Right, LOL). OHH yea in a 14' raft. Also if any one has some current news on the section would be great to know. Thanks, Cec

pretty low.. What kind of boat are you using? If you are going to drive 3 hours to go to browns, why not go run the Upper Colorado. It has a mandatory flow of almost 1000 cfs and there are hot springs along the way. Shuttle will cost you like $35 from one of the services there.

The lower Arkansas from Salida down isn't too bad, but it's still low and frustrating to some boaters (not sure your skill level). Also it's along the highway.

Salida is still alot cheaper to stay in than the Glenwood to Minturn area. I would like to do that strech, some time. You hit the nail on the head too, skill level is low and try to build it and my confidence right now. At least the Arkansas and Animas, though slow have good some movment to them. Helps keep my arms from being as tired. Running a 14.5' raft w/frame. Hey plus I realy think Salida is a kool town, still has a soul unlike alot of other places these days.

it's a cool town no doubt. Not too many locals left there (mostly imports) So enjoy some local knowledge.

You can get that boat down the river in the mellow stretches of Big Horn Sheep Canyon for sure. I would stay away from Browns unless you feel real strong and wan to do lots of dead lifts. Rincon to Valley Bridge (camping area) and/or Canyon Trading Post should be ok. You are still likely to get stuck so bring a friend or 2.
