When to wear dry suits, wet suits, waders?
I'm new to whitewater and have a question about dry suits and wet suits. I've always just rafted in my waders when fishing, but that wasn't through more than class II, and usually less.
Now that spring is here, I'm I Colorado, and air temps are warming up, I'm not sure what to wear. Back in the Midwest I'd be wet-wading soon. Colorado rivers are obviously not the same, and I'm not quite sure how to prepare, especially now that I want to raft for fun instead of a means to fish.
I'm floating and fishing the Arkansas near Buena Vista in the coming weeks with my wife. Air temps will be warm, but water will obviously be cold. Should I get a dry suit to go through the rough stuff? More importantly, when I bring my wife along does she need a dry or wet suit? Or with warm temps should we be ok without?
