Pineview <0.25ft Sunday 9/13

At noon I optimistically called it 0.3, Looking at it at 6:30pm,looked a bit lower. Still above 0, but getting harder to tell.

I’m going to say:
0.3ft => ~2.4ft/258cfs @Hewlett

Canyon Mouth was ~55cfs and 2.84ft

Pineview 1.3ft at ~5pm Thursday 9/10

Dropped some, but still fun out there.

Hewlett gauge: 344.8cfs, 2.91ft
Canyon mouth: 128cfs, 3.16ft

Pineview at ~1.5ft noon and 5pm Sunday 9/6

Looked like 1.5- on the drive up at noon and was at the top of 1.5 when floating by at ~5pm. Grab it while it’s here, lots of good fun out there (really!). Saw lots of picnickers today, very few boaters.

Hewlett Gauge: 3.08ft, 492cfs
Canyon Mouth: 3.37ft, 214cfs

For those of you who may run Poudre Park, watchout for the log between the pourover rock (center right) just below the last bridge above Cardiac and the rock just upstream and left of it. The common center line is blocked by a 6-8″ diameter log. At 1.1ft it was clearly out of the water, right now it is just under the water and not visible upstream. It could make for an unhappy day if you hit it. Far right, or one of the doors on the left work fine.

Pineview at 1.1ft at 6:30pm Sept 4th

Water came up some today, get some September boating while it’s here.

At ~6:30pm – 1.1ft
Hewlett: ~2.81ft, ~380cfs
Mouth: 3.03ft, 95cfs

Lost Dog Found – Banjo

Latest update from Donna Brooks, re: Banjo…

“Just wanted to thank all of you who run the Poudre that kept a watch out for our lost dog Banjo. She was found on Friday 7/24 in Estes Park and had traveled about 80 miles across the forest to get there. Many of you helped in the search, helped with transportation, and also helped by keeping in touch with us with your sightings of her. Just wanted you to know how much we appreciate all of you who spend your time on the river. You were instrumental in helping us keep tabs on Banjo and also in helping her find her way home. A big thanks to all of you who were involved in the efforts to get her out of the canyon.”

Boaters- Front Range Communities are trying to steal our water and forever change the Poudre. Have your voice heard. We were at the “hearing” last night, and there’s another public hearing tonight in Greeley. Do NOT be Complacent. These front range communities are hungry- and hungry for our Riv… all in the name of Ag. Save Ag water to build more homes on Ag land… what a farce! Make your opinion count! Make your voice heard! Written comments are taken until Sept 3 if you can’t make it to the hearing tonight (and if you weren’t among the “randomly” selected people to speak last night).
