    Wadable is flow dependent
    Anything from stonefly to trails end is on the river left trail and accessed all that
    Usfs shitter at cottonwood was open and functional over the 4th
    Jacskson's big for a single shady camp with good sprey access

    They all have pros and cons and a few are reservable
    I could summer at pugmire easy
    And can back row to washboard at any flow
    I've spent a week at tree tops
    Best shade and seclusion and perfect for b/c laps
    But worthless if red creek blow out

    Just to add to what SFB said - I've always been a fan of grasshopper as well (we usually have a few boats and reserve them both). If the flows are low, we've had no problem rowing over to the island and back to wade.

    I booked Cottonwood for a couple nights when I take the wife and kids for their first trip down the green in August b/c of the shitter. Unfortunately it sounds like the fire over the weekend may have damaged it. Glad they got it out quickly.

    Bumping this one, planning on a couple day trip late June with the kids and another family... A & A+B. Looking at snowpack and drought conditions, any advice on if we should re-think this? Coming from the Midwest so we have to plan a bit for the trip.

    Hey all,
    Whatís the protocol for signing out the first come first serve sites? Iíve reversed cottonwood a few times , but missed the dates this year.

    I know you sign up at Little hole,
    But can you get in line the night before, early am? We will be there a Saturday in June , so expecting it to be busy and want to make sure we can get a spot

    On another note, looking like a really minimal high water period this year ....only holding 4k for one day then decreasing back to low water...??

    Plan on base flows all summer. It's bony at Red Creek but it goes. We ran a hard boat recently at low flows. Hit a few rocks, but the sticker on the boat said to "fear no rock" so all good. A raft won't be a too bad as long as you stay away from the pointy ones.

    The LH board is a 2-week sliding window. Getting a spot for a Saturday the day before = slim pickings. And yeah, no big flush this year which sucks. Likely a big moss year on C.
