From the Arkansas River Outfitters Association via PR Newswire:

This is the third year in a row that Colorado snowstorms preluded a strong boating season. Snowpack piled up this year to 120% of average in parts of the state…

Peak flows on Colorado’s rivers begin in late May and last until the third week of June. Difficult sections of whitewater during this time attract active and adventurous paddlers willing to get wet and paddle hard.

With more than 150 miles of Colorado’s best whitewater, the Arkansas River from above Buena Vista through Salida to Cañon City offers trips suitable for most people any time of the season.

Rafting during high water in Browns Canyon National Monument delivers faster-moving water and big waves as rocks become covered and create hydraulic river features…
