Colorado’s upcoming rafting season expected to ‘be perfect for families’ – Denver, Colorado

Denver, Colorado 2021-06-11 07:37:07 –

The Denver — Colorado River Outfitters Association expects to return to the normal rafting season this summer.

According to CROA, the season is expected to continue until the end of July or mid-August.

CROA Executive Director David Costlow said the association is encouraged by those who pre-book to enjoy the water.

“We predict that this summer’s river flow is perfect for families to go out together and discover new and favorite adventures,” he said.

CROA forecasts Colorado river outlook.

  • Western Slope (Taylor and Animas): This year’s snowfall is 70% and the water level can be faster than normal, but the outfits are expected to run a great family from mid-August and perhaps beyond.
  • Colorado River: The river near Glenwood Springs is currently seeing higher streams from the Eagle River and Roaring Fork. In the suburbs of Kremling, the reservoir is now slightly lower than normal due to the initial pool of water, but when the water is released in late June, the water level rises.Execution continues until September
  • Clear Creek: Clear Creek is currently doing well. If weekly humidity persists, it will continue until the end of July, perhaps early August. (Currently, tubing access restrictions are in place)
  • poodle: Benefiting from the humidity of the second half of the season, the Poodle River may provide a strong stream until August. (Access restrictions are enforced in Fort Collins for tubing)
  • Arkansas River: Arkansas Controlled Flow Program Needs Water for Recreation Until Mid-August

Recent rainfall and annual snowmelt have resulted in a one-to-two punch in many streams and rivers throughout Colorado. Streamflow is above normal in many parts of the state I urged restrictions in several places.

Be sure to check the condition of the river before going out to the water.
