Yampa River water levels decrease from early summer

Still, experts caution river users about above average levels

The rush of the Yampa River may be significantly less than it was two months ago, but the discharge can hardly be called low. Yampa River State Park Manager Ron DellaCroce said water levels in the river have “dropped substantially” from where they were in mid-May. However, the water is still surging at an above average rate.

No life jacket...... The parent's should be arrested for child abuse.. Some people think it won't happen to them. The river is not much lower than normal high water right now. Still very dangerous.
