Spring Conditions & Operations

It’s been a rather cool spring so far with a fair amount of rain and snow.  If we all have to be cooped up, I suppose this is a good time to do so.  River levels have been running around average for this time of year, which is a little high compared to early summer levels.   Keep in mind that there is still a decent snowpack at the higher elevations of the Whites.  So when it rains, the river comes up quickly and more than it would without snowmelt.  River temps are in the 40s.  So, hypothermia is definitely a danger should you capsize.  Restrictions for river use and should be lifted and or relax as we go through May.  We remind everyone to distance if they are going out anywhere, even outside.
