Looking for some info on the Pecos from anyone that’s done it. My impressions are that it’s comparable to the Devils (access, fishery, scenery, etc) but not sure. I’d like to scratch it off the list but would love some insider information to hep plan it.

Didn't someone on here have a near death experience on the Pecos a few years ago due to flash flooding? The story itself was amazing.

Robert Field (Google Field Trips)did the follow-up/return video. Good program & worth the watch. Can't remember the original flood groups' names. Also a very informative and enlightening watch.

Wait until the pecos actually has a flow. That is the boat ramp where my truck is parked. [Linked Image]

I'm guessing the park people dug the channel from the water to the ramp but it is useless at only an inch deep. You
definitely couldn't paddle thru it but it would make it easier to drag your kayak to the ramp. Also with the water so low i can only imagine the flutes halfway to pandale, you would have to drag your kayak for miles and with the salt content in the pecos it makes all the rocks rough just like sandpaper and any dragging would wear a hole thru your kayak.
Do your homework before you go! I have a book on running the pecos from pandale to the pecos ramp. Ill see if i can find it and post a link. It is a very cool book that has all the springs where you can get drinking water and camp areas along the river and most importantly where the rapids are

The Pecos story I recall was Bert Rodriguez and son Dan getting caught in the flood on the river.

ON my list this year. Guess we need to watch those flows - CLOSELY. Looking to start or join a group, but have to get a kayak first!

Have two of Aulbach's books now in hand - The Devils and The Pecos ... the plot thickens even if the water doesn't!
