BLM Taos is still telling me there will be flows on week-ends in September below El Vado dam on the Rio Chama. Its a $5 per person BLM fee with no advanced permit required. They plan on at least 600cfs releases, hopefully its more like 800. Groovers and fire pans requried for the overnighter from El Vado, no fees or other stuff needed if you put in at Chavez Canyon.
Weather should be good this week-end.

Chama Canyon Week-Ends

@whitewaterwheat. Thanks for the tag along offer, but its my mom's birthday that week-end and I'll be out of town. Have fun!

@ballbuster. Chama Canyon is primarily Class II with a little class III and some flatwater spots. Its mostly known for being a Wild and Scenic overnighter if you put it below El Vado. Pretty mellow read and run on the rapids, folks take pets, kids, parents, etc., all the time. I'm exited about the September flows as its hard to get an in season permit to do the run. I typically just run the Racecourse on the Rio Grande below Taos and then head over and camp and run the road accessable lower part of the Rio Chama.

And its at 795cfs right now, they turn it back down Sunday afternoon.
