I don't know the Roaring Fork below Slaughterhouse.

This long holiday weekend, the Roaring Fork could hit 5000 at Basalt and
up to 10,000 below the Crystal.

What is the low bridge situation below Slaughterhouse?

Thanks

I ran Wingo (3 mi above Basalt) to Carbondale Saturday evening - think it was 4000 or so. Bridges were passable (had to duck). Water was fast and pushy but nothing to get too worked up about. I heard that slaughterhouse was closed due to a low bridge

Slaughter is not closed to private boaters and there are no bridge issues.
The current flows however are above commercial cut off.

Yeah. I assumed the raised bridge was good in a cat up to 3k?

Don't know about the bridges below Slaughterhouse.

My bad - just passing along a rumor but I haven't run that stretch. Flows on the Fork and Crystal doubled this weekend so stay current.
