Are you sure it is running. The flow data says 1340. The lowest have heard it was run at was about 1800 or a little lower. Right now it should be a lot of rocks and a little trickle of water. Cosurfgod, you can use whatever boat you are comfertable in; unless it's at high water. Well, that's my to bits
I could be wrong, but if the Shoshone power plant is shut off, then all 1300cfs would be spilling over the dam and it would be running. I think 1800 is the level at which it runs even if the power plant is operational.
like I said, I'm not sure if it is running right now because I'm down in Durango. But at 1800 to 4000 people call it a iv and above, a V. Last run off, the colorado strecth above G-wood and on down got really high. It peaked at 12000! Yes and I mean 12000. I didn't do barrel but shoshone was kick'en.
Can anyone check and see if it is running. like I also said, the lowest I have heard it run at was 1800. I might be heading back to G-wood for the weekend and would be interested in running it
Barrel is about a class 4 right now for your average high water boater....Between 4000-7000 is when it starts kicking and the moves are more must makish....A swim here sucks, its shallow, pointy rocks, and long! good luck
