Silverthorne Town Run
At flows above 1,000cfs this can offer up fun play for locals via the fish weirs visible at lower water. While many surf options exist at these flows, there isn't one with a service eddy! Mind the bridge at these flows. Although this run can be done down to 250cfs it isn't recommended much below 400cfs due to negative interaction with fisherman in this crowded fishing section. You can also continue past the takeout all the way down to the putin for the upper blue for miles and miles of class II drifting with frequent low bridges.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Blue River are between a bare minimum of 400cfs and a high of 2,000cfs.
