Eagle River Above 4000

Looking to raft the Eagle River from Avon to Chambers Park this weekend. Looks like it'll be in the 4000-4300 cfs range and I haven't found any information about that stretch at these current levels. Anybody aware of clearance or take out issues at these flows?

You will not be able to get under the bridge at Wolcot/trestle. If you are not familiar with the Eagle I suggest you pick an alternate river to float this weekend. Flows with be around 3000 and Avon to Edwards deserves respect.

As flows drop the section below Avon will start to regain it's teeth. Scout trestle bridge above Wolcott. There are low bridges below Wolcott, the Diamond S Bridge is likely the lowest. If you have a big/tall setup you should expect to duck or need to skip the lower run. The poop pipe (at the Fairgrounds) below Chambers is likely too close for many rigs, however it can easily be scouted.
