Have never done the lower flat water stretch of the encampment river. Would like to float fish it this year.

What is the lower and upper levels? Which gauge do people use?

Call one if the fly shops in the area- they'll know for sure. Very nice fishing float.....for a little while each year

i've been told 1k is the cutoff for the bridges to be passable but have never verified that personally. i was told even at that level you have to lay everything in the boat flat, including yourself. about 200 to 250 is my personal lower cutoff.

1200-1500 is the cutoff for the bridges, but it gets really tight. also, the portion from the Smelter put in to State section is always FULL of wood. very dangerous. it's not uncommon to flip and/or pin boats at high flows. a coworker of mine had their husband get caught in a strainer, the thing that saved his life was his knee blowing out enought he could wiggle free.
