|Looks warm right ?|
So I got this message on the Imperial Venture Corps FB page Canoeing minnehaha creek today. Dam release is at 300 it is going to be a bit spicy with a couple bridges. And cold. Still in the planning phase but likely starting at noon at Minnetonka Mills and going for a couple hours. I replied back..... needing a little more info, but basically... IN.
|The water is cold and very clear. I used to seeing it a lot murkier|
At the time of this writing the creek is way up , at 300cfs at Gray's Bay dam, and not normal for the end of November. The chart below is from the Canoe Minnehaha Creek website.
|DISCHARGE (Cubic feet per second [cfs])||CREEK CONDITION|
|Less than 75 cfs||Poor|
|75 cfs - 150 cfs||Good|
|Greater than 150 cfs||Dangerous|
|small-ish rapids typical|
|going under 169|
|prepare to ram|
|Ice breaker "Clifford"|
|Take out at the dam in Edina|
PS... not sure why the writing and font is all F-ed up ....I'll try to fix it later
