Whats going on with with Silver Bullet right now? Is it good to run? I'm planning to run from RR Bridge to Hecla or Stone next week to get a longer day on the water. Thanks.

I remember in a thread a few weeks ago that it was something to avoid but was not actually "closed?" to private boaters. I'm just wondering if its good/safe to run? While that is speculative anyone on here run it lately?

Well I called, very nice and helpful. The issue is the hydraulic at the bottom. Commercials must portage and they recommend all boaters portage until visual inspection proves otherwise.

We ran it over fibark before they closed it and if you are looking for a nice recirculating swim with a chance of drowning I would recommend. All others be safe and portage. Super rough!

Anyone got a "visual inspection" of how it is at the current levels (about 1500 - 1600)? I expect AHRA's going to keep recommending against running it after the flow drops to 700 later this year just to be conservative and as a CYA, however I'm interested in running it, and the stretch to JV, before it gets that low.

Thanks!

Ran it last sunday, 1700 or so at 3;00pm baseball park, rough but fun, doing it this sunday at about 11;00 am 16ft cat red and black, 970.390.0137 wookie.

Here is what it looked like yesterday. AHRA went in about 2 weeks ago and did some work on the portage trail. They are currently in negotiations with REP about potential changes to the feature to be done this off season.

Thanks for the visual, Logan! Glad I didn't run it blind a couple of weeks ago

I think I'll wait for the flow to drop a little more considering the swim that's waiting below the rapid.

Thanks for the replies and pics. Andy if you go to run that section let me know and I'll do the same I too would like to run that section. I'm going up to run JV to SB on Friday if anyone will be out that day we can hook up.
