We aren't even close yet. It will get 3-4 times faster.

The Poudre peaks the first or second week of June on average. Dry, hot years will bring the peak near the end of May. It hasn't been really warm this year and it is only the 25th of May and the Poudre hit 4500 cfs today! That is a big flow for the Poudre and there are 2-3 week left before the snowpack has blown it's wad.:eek2:

The Colorado near Kremmling has doubled the past week almost at 8000 Its been a few years since the river has had this amount of water. I bet it jumps past 10,000

snowpack

Lad, I think the only place in Colorado that didn't get covered up in snow was the Southwest. 'Fraid the chances are over now.

Yup, fished the Blue through Silverthorne yesterday, since it is one of the only moving water options near me right now. It gets old, hooking a fish, runs you into current where you can't keep up, and then goodbye!

Fishing pieces are coming off of the raft frame. It's time for some whitewater fun for a while.

The Colorado below Glenwood Springs is running at 16,500cfs, will more then likely be over 20,000cfs by the weekend.

It gets those big numbers, because it's so wide. Lots of water passing by, but not as fast as the numbers would lead you to believe.

At Browns Canyon the Ark is 1000cfs above the 50 year average for this time of year.

Wait until it peaks.
