Sounds like a great way to spend the summer. I ran Burnt Ranch Gorge last year @ 1260 cfs. Considering the put-in description said put in by the dump, I wasn't expecting much in terms of scenery, but it turned out to be a beautiful canyon with a ton of fun rapids and it apparently has a really long season. At our water level it seemed like most of the rapids were in the IV+ to V- range. The Vs had some choices of sneak or meat lines. It seemed like most everything was portage-able as well, though one involved an interesting seal launch. Though a few hazards existed, for the most part it struck me as a relatively safe run. I think in the summer after runoff it tends to be below 1000 cfs and generally easier.
I'm not sure if the section of clear creek you're referring to is the what's typically called lower clear creek (i.e. from the green bridge down), but if it is, then your goal is probably reasonable. It seems like that's the local go-to run, so I'm sure you'll figure out what's appropriate from people around there.
