    Is it up? If it is I might like to go but I doubt very much that it is big enough to do anything with.

    I doubt it dude. I think theres gotta be more water than that for bloop to really be running. I think its still there at that level but its probably just a small green wave. Anyone else out there know for sure?

    Hey shatterbug, we met last Thursday at the Gorge (you were with Walshy). This website outlines the features of bloop at different levels [url:2xxmpx1x]http://www.kayakdirect.netfirms.com/bigbloop.htm[/url:2xxmpx1x] . Use the GRCA website to see what the real time river level is at (Galt gauge) [url:2xxmpx1x]http://www.grandriver.ca/index/document.cfm?Sec=2&Sub1=6&Sub2=1[/url:2xxmpx1x] . A river level of 27 is great for beginners.

    Thanks man. Yeah 27 is actually a good level I’ve been told, but the level has fallen to about 23 now so….I don’t know. Me and Walshy are sort of planning on checking it out tomorrw. I’d like to get into a different play spot that I can actually try stuff in without fear of smashing my head like at the ender hole at the gorge. Thanks for the heads up. By the way Tyler you wanna paddle this week at the gorge? Let me know.
