What level are you referring to? Unfortunately, the level through barrel isn't as easy to determine with a gauge given how the dam goes on and off with changes to the power plant.

On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

Isn't it like 800 or nothing depending on the dam right now...? Ran it a couple of weeks ago at that flow and it was fun, not too challenging, but fun for sure.
Please take a look at my Photo Web Gallery.
I also have here some gear reviews (that I might update soon).
