I wish I was going.  The $100.00 deposit will be applied to your bill.  Not sure about when the water level will be up.  I never look at the release numbers. I wait for some other brave boater to head up river.   ;D  Hang out in the cove and relax.  You'll know when it is safe. Be safe and have fun.  :beer:

If I hang out in cove too long ill be cross eyed quickly. I have to find a sucker there to move/park my truck while I park my floater too. Hopefully no stories monday about how my truck was stolen. Lol.

Rocky,
Before you launch walk down to the grassy area and survey the river then walk down to the ramp and check it out.  If you launch early stay 30 feet from the dock and swing wide to the right at the point entering the cove.  As the water level starts coming you should be fairly good going south under the bridge if you stay to the left.  There is a shallow rock bar 30 yards south of the bridge on the right.  Make sure you walk down to the river when the water level is really low and you will see the areas to avoid even after the water comes up.  Use good judgment and you should be fine.  Have fun and be safe.

You are a local Daniel, will the cfs depend on the alignment of Jupiter and Mars?  ;D I hope the levels are up.  You all have fun.

Land lover says, "Where is Lazy Harry's? Is it a restaurant?" Hate to ask all these questions but I'd rather look stupid now rather look stupid on the water. O0

Thanks!! From what I understand its more complicated from the Avi going upstream. Also someone once told me that its usually deeper on the sides of the river with steepest angles into the water. And most important test upstream.

Should be plenty of water this weekend- forcast for fri is 5 units, noon to 7 p.m. (enough water for the Titanic). Plans have changed, going to willow beach
Iguana's is decent for mexican food (on the river) and Rusty (Riviera Marina) has jet boater hydration supplies.  :thumbup:
