The rain has been perfect in the Blue Rivers drainage area. Its a perfect ride at 1000CFS down to 200 CFS
Its up at 600 at the time of this post.

Be on time, we will leave at the time posted and set up our shuttle..... You will be left behind if late.


You will bring and wear your PFD. This trip is a bubbly fun ride, but is a bit higher then most have run this. That said, this is not for a beginner paddler, and you are responsible for your own safety.
There where 2 drownings here just over a week ago.

This trip takes 2-3 hours, and is a blast! Bring a lunch.

    Linda, the Blue rewards ya. About the time that one is sick of paddling....conversation ceases...when one hears the good stuff up ahead....folks pick up the paddled count some...looking ahead, getting ready for some fun!

      Definitely. Are you able to haul another boat? If not I'll rig something. My car (Subaru) is in the shop along with my tie down straps. If not I can rig something into my wife's Honda Civic. Lemme know.

    Not sure if I have good enough paddling skill. How do I know? Have taken one white water class and stayed in the boat.

    This is going to be different. I've never run the Blue when the temperature was above freezing.

      Under 1000 cfs, and not freezing. Water will still be cool. I cant wait.... I havnt run this in normal conditions in 3 years.
