I was able to fill up my water bottle for the descent on Day 2, but when I got back that night, I couldn't get much water out of the stream where it crossed the trail. The pre-filter on my MSR Sweetwater kept getting clogged.
I was using chlorine drops at that time, would have just filled containers, put them in and waited. That's a tough wait when really thirsty. I use the Platypus Gravity Works now, it would have handled the dirty water much better than the Sweetwater. I still have my Sweetwater, but haven't used it in some time. It would start squirting out the side about half way filling a container. That was only in really low water flows though.
