- Advertisment -

The Colorado River Outfitters Association (CROA) released this week’s Water Report describing the current conditions on 17 of Colorado’s rivers.

CROA reported excellent “family” rafting opportunities on 11 stretches Colorado’s rivers, with water temperatures ranging from 50 to 60 degrees and average air temperatures in the 80s. Families can enjoy mellow trips on the Animas, Arkansas, Cache la Poudre, Gunnison and Green Rivers as well as the Colorado River at Kremmling, Glenwood Springs, Ruby/Horsethief Canyon and Grand Junction/Westwater.

For more experienced rafters and kayakers, The Taylor River, from Upper Taylor to Almont, reported Class III rapids and expects to have them all summer long in this dam-controlled, cool, clear water. The Eagle River from Dowd Shute to Gypsum reported “great whitewater” with rapids ranging from Class II to IV. CROA noted this as an an early summer run and advised to “catch it while you can.”


Designed to give an update on the current conditions of Colorado’s rivers, the Weekly Water Report will be distributed throughout Colorado’s rafting season to inform the public on which rivers CROA members are operating on. For each river, the Weekly Water Report provides a concise overview of the river’s current conditions, including rate of flow measured, average air and water temps, sections running, experiences offered and a general description of what to expect.


CROA is the trade association representing more than 50 licensed professional whitewater rafting outfitters across the state. CROA’s mission is to promote Colorado as the premier river rafting destination in the United States, support members’ efforts to attract visitors to Colorado and to provide a reasoned voice on industry developments and matters of policy affecting commercial boating and Colorado’s tourism economy as a whole.
