River Description


See Banks & Eckardt, Colorado Rivers & Creeks II. Also see Rio Pueblo.

There's an additional mile of flatwater on the Santa Cruz Reservoir. CRC II says, of the takeout, "A day use fee is required here, but if you ask, the park ranger will allow you to run shuttle without charging for both vehicles."

Some Notes on the flow:
According to the locals, If using the guage height in feet please note that online gauge reads one point higher than the visual. If online says 2.3 the visual is around 2.2.

  • 2.1 goes, which is about 90cfs.
  • 2.3 (112cfs.) to 2.5 is a nice minumin.

135cfs is a nice level, as it is just enough water to cover up most the rocks but not so much that you have keep your head down through the willow tunnels. As the level increases, the willows seem be more of issue.
