Flows in the upper canyon, as of Sunday @ 7pm:
Joe Wright = High
Big South = Stomping high (the gauge rock was completely under water)
Spencer Heights = High (3.5ft on the painted rock gauge at Boneyard)
Little South Fork = Medium-Low (75 at the put-in gauge @ noon)
Little South Fork wood update: Our group kayaked the Little South Fork of the Poudre yesterday at medium-low flows and had two mandatory portages around river-wide logs. The first portage was easy to spot, about a third of the way down the run below the second of two new debris flows, around a river wide tree. The second portage begins at the entrance of the main rapid, toward the end of the run, immediately after a blind left-hand turn. Here you are avoiding two river-wide log jams, the first of which is in the lead-in to the rapid, and the other (a river wide dam) blocks the main drop itself. Be extremely careful leading up to the main rapid (the one near the end of the run), as the new log jam comes up fast around a blind corner with few options for eddies.
