As of 11:30am the rock was at 0.8ft. :lol: No new hazards in the middle abd lower narrows, there is some wood in race car that may cut lose as the flows come up so be careful.

Cheers...

I haven't been up there but how can it be at .9 if the gage at the canyon mouth is reading 44 cfs. Isn;t the guage supposed to have more water than the run at pineview? Is the guage messed up? If i am misunderstanding how the system works please tell me.

The gauge at the mouth (the one you can see online) is next to useless. There are at least two or three places between the Pine View gauge (aka the Rock) and the mouth where a significant amount of water can be taken out of the Poudre. So the mouth will usually read much lower than Pine View (unless there is no water being diverted or the N Fork is adding a lot of water).

Someone in RMA just told me 2.0 on the rock, I'd didn't believe him. He said it was running brown and churning.

I aint to cool to get on at 1.5 ft. I'm also fiending. The river should be goin within a week, the raftin companies are firing up on fri or sat. so they should let a little water out?? Keep the rock reports comin please...

Monday = .92 feet on the rock.

Upper Narrows = fun
Middle Narrows = mostly bones, but some fun moves still exist
Lower Narrows = low water fun

Beats doing nothing, i guess. There were a couple people paddling Filter Plant too.

First time paddling since my shoulder blowout in AZ. Happily, no issues or pain. First time in the Jefe. That boat is sick.

ToddG, I thought we called it at .925 and we wouldn't have wanted any lower. Definitely would not be worth at .900 for sure. Life Force, good to see it's on the up and... shit I'm out to Cali in less than 48 hours. Yesssss.

oh snap! you're right, evan. that was a typo. the actual rock reading as of 4:58:38 monday, was .925 .. not .92. and, no, not even .915 would be an acceptible level for paddling the narrows. has to be .925, minimally.
