Big Bend to Rincon

Does anyone know how long it would take to float from Big Bend to Rincon at the current flow? I think about 700 cfs. Heading down Sunday and want to make a good trip. I think Salida East to Rincon will be to short so I was hoping to make it from big bend in a day trip. Any info would be awesome!

It's 15 miles and would plan on 5-6 hours for straight float time. If you are fishing then add time for that too. I did Salida East to Rincon last weekend in about 3+ hours with abit of eddy out and wade fishing. Great to be out but I was frozen by the end of the day and glad I wasn't more ambitious with mileage. Weather was abit rough and windy though. hopefully you will have better.

Nothing even close to ice though. There was hardly even any snow on the ground to be seen.
