I’ve been up this with a 25 horsepower outboard , however I wonder if a 5 hp would push a 16 foot raft up from Willow beach. We’re going light with only my wife and I. If I try and go when the damn releases aren’t going, do you think I could get up the the hot springs?

Cheers and bring the snow,

Tda

I was just there this fall and we drove a snout rig up with a 30 Hp. but I think you could make it fine but it might take little while. We saw all sorts of crafts up there and spent the night tied up below the mouth to the Nevada hot springs and also saw small craft up there also. When we were there the 'release' began around 4pm and comes up 8-10 vertical feet in a couple hours and had mostly dropped back out by around 10pm or so. FYI, no motors up stream on Sundays and Mondays.
