with the flows on the S. Platte low and trending lower, the Lower Blue, below Green Mountain Reservoir north of Silverthorne, offer a good bet for class III whitewater.
Lower Blue Plan to meet at the Stegosaurus Parking Lot Off I-70 and Morrison Rd., southeast side, at 8 AM, or meet at the put in at the town of Heeney, following the guidance provided by the link at 10 AM. The water here flows out of the bottom of Green Mountain Reservoir and therefore is very cold, so dress appropriately, depending upon what you have available, dry suit or wet suit with splash jacket. Shorts and tee shirts are not appropriate here.
