Bailey at Low Water

Alright, you all will call me crazy for passing up great runs with tons of water just for a low water Bailey run. But, I have my reasons....

With that said, I have never been in there under 350cfs and was wondering how low has it been boated. My last memory of that run was at 600 and it was a blast!

Can it be navigated at 200cfs????

First, you are crazy for passing up the other runs.
But, i've done it down to 160. I wouldn't do it under 180.
The big drops are still fun quite low but the in-between and especially the paddle in and out are unpleasantly bony.

I've done it at 145 (thought it was 157 when I put in). Bony, but it's still creekin in October. I prefer 225+ but will go down to 165 if its the only thing running.

Come out to the Ark this weekend though!!!
