Yep, 3' to go, flows into Barker are picking up, 136cfs currently. The dam manager this weekend thought it would go by Thursday, we will see. Interesting that the North Fork boulder Creek hasn't really picked up yet either, must be plumbing from Lakewood res to Betasso for Boulder water?
There maybe one tree in the lower part, but we got around it. The construction site is clear, but not impressed with how they changed the creek. There was a considerable amount of wood floating around the edges and in eddies, that will be moving.
My notes say 580 cfs on the Orodell gauge is The bottom end of good for our 14’ raft. 600+ is padded and fun. Looks like it’s getting close for a raft depending on your tolerance for some hang ups and boat abuse. That also doesn’t account for whatever the new situation is at Arapahoe.
Looks like my reply didn't post. Apologies if this is a duplicate...
My notes say 580cfs on the Orodell gauge was the low end of fun for our 14' raft. 600+ is well padded and tons of fun! Of course, it depends on your tolerance for hangups and boat abuse. Also doesn't take in account any changes at Arapahoe. Hope that helps.
