West water canyon, UT?

I have been searching for info but it all seems vague. Can anyone confirm that access to the river is open if you already have a permit? Has anyone launched since the shut down?

Its open - self check in. Have several friends that confirmed this recently. I think the BLM ranger posted on mt buzz saying the same recently as well.

Ran it this past Fri/Sat. There were BLM Police officers there checking people in and making sure everyone had a permit. It wasn't your usual check-in, just more "lets see your permit." It was a little strange to have someone in a bullet proof vest and gun holstered checking you in! Was a great run, enjoy!

So how was Sock it to Me? I have fond memories of some excellent carnage on that drop. And some truly horrific if humorous play attempts.

Flow is currently 5980. Sock it to me will be great at that flow. Watch the left lateral before the catchers mitt.
