That river is fun @ around 700, Blackrock @ 500 or less becomes a little waterfall that's fun to run. I ran the Salt in May of 07 around 475 cfs, it was still fun.

January 30th, 2010. 5000 cfs, pushy, washed out mostly, some rapids had some big waves; Grumman & Exhibition. I am not the most skilled boater and I was disappointed that it made it less technical, you didn't have to find a line. I would think that at this time of year that would not be the case at higher flows.
Whether U Think U Can, or Think U Can't; U R Right!

APACHE FALLS: The falls upstream the put-in is class V unless you run it FAR river left. Seen a few brave souls try and run it class 3 style (middle) in the last 15 years, it chewed them up and almost drown them. I think its been done, but dont know of a witnessed/documented account. The rapid just below the falls has a very sticky hole in it at higher flows. Many have swam out almost stripped of their gear, haha. I still think there is a wager riding on that hole from McComb/Ryderman crew from the early 90's.

SALT: I have run it kayaking at many levels up to 8000. Big juicy stuff in some places and squirly crazy in others. Behaves like most class 3 rivers at high water. Most everything is easy to go around at higher levels. If your worried about high water on the Salt, dont. No V's on the upper salt that I have seen. I know folks who have run it at 20k and 30 k, and reported back with grins you cant wipe off their faces...
