Is there any park and play on the westside with these forecasted flows on any run? Seems like there should be something!

Paradise on the Green is at a good cartwheel level.  I might go tomorrow AM-midday if levels don't change.  I would love to get on a big wave instead though.  Maybe someone knows the high water runs better than me (which is not super well).

That is all. Everything else is float and play.

No idea. It was Ottawa sized when I saw it last, probably bigger.. I was scared. Yesterday you could just make out the big rocks on either side making the pinch, but at 70k there was a nice big grey tongue pushing through, no wave. And the rocks were flushing pourovers.

The play run is getting some love, hopefully the wood stops coming down by the time I get there.

The wood situation wasn't too terrible by Rodeo hole. Only a few decent sized pieces came down when we were at the river right wave at drunkards (aka jacuzzi wave). Hawaii 5.0 looked pretty nasty, not sure it will be back like it was last fall.

Peshastin looked like it was as much mud and wood as it was water. When we went past the confluence yesterday, it was like passing the little colorado while chucking out a steady stream of wood. It really was something else.

That was at 6k. Yesterday at ~8500 Hawaii 5.0 was just epic. The walk back up isn't too bad, did two big long soul surfs. A good playboater could really have fun in the pile.

How was Trinity? Not high enough I bet.. perfect level for the 5.0 though! Love that wave.

It looks like it was high enough around 2am Sunday. I'd guess it was in for an hour or so. By the time I got up there it was around 8500 CFS, so it wasn't in then. I heard there were some river gnomes doing some work in that area when the water was super low . The river right wave (still trying to name it jacuzzi wave) was in at the 8500 level and apparently was quite good.

Naselle is amazing and has some sweet class 4 upstream. Be wary of wood though, you need a spotter upstream.
