Fish Creek - Lower Fish Creek

Colorado-US  

Description

A nick easier than the upper section, Lower Fish Creek is a short fun creekboat run in Steamboat.  Wood is often the most significant hazard on this run, so try to get the local wood report before running it.  At low water it can be manky but at high water it's a rollercoaster ride.  This section often includes what the locals call the middle section (between the 2 diversion dams).
