    I did it Apr 27th, and it was on the dry side in fairly easy conditions, although the Happy section was cold and wet. I heard that it rained shortly after I was there, not sure how hard though.

    One thing to be aware of, from the riparian section on watch out for poison ivy. Not a major concern in canyon since you'll be in a wetsuit, but you don't want to be brushing against it too much and getting a lot of oil on the outside. The real concern is after the final rappel, it was easy to avoid, but if you take off your wetsuit you'll want to be on the lookout.

    @TommyBoy -- Did you camp at Fence? Approx time from Start to Finish? Any other reliable info you could share would be appreciated, since I've got this one on the radar for sometime in the next 2 - 3 weeks.
    Where you are....Is not who you are.

    We camped at fence, water levels in canyon were on the low side, however we still needed a wetsuit in the Happy section and it has since had at least one major storm in the area. The river was running about knee deep at the deepest. It took us about 8-8.5 hrs from camp to the final rappel, then we stayed there and hid in the shade while stuff dried before hiking back to camp.

    There was a LOT of poison ivy in the riparian section and in the more open sections after that it popped up from time to time, all the way through the final rappel.
