What the River Flow Means For Rafting

The River Gauge in Pagosa gives flow in CFS – cubic feet per seconds.  River levels can fluctuate daily based on snow melt and rainfall.

  • below 400 = Too low to raft, tubing
  • 400-800 = low
  • 800-1500 = medium
  • 1500-2400 = medium/high
  • 2400-3600 = high
  • 3600-up= really high

First trip down the river Pagosa Outside

First trip down the river for my family & we had a blast! Can't say enough good things about our guide, Becca, & the rest of the crew with Pagosa Outside. Would definitely recommend them for your adventure & we will most definitely return for many more adventures ourselves!

Fantastic introduction to whitewater rafting for my kids

I took my 7 and 9 year old white water rafting for the first time with Pagosa Outside. We did their 2 hour trip through town and the kids and I had so much fun we came back two days later to do their 4 hour trip through Mesa Canyon. Our guides on both trips were fun/supportive and knew their job well. Was very glad that they could give my kids such an awesome introduction to rafting and what may well be a lifelong hobby.
