Can poudre narrows be run at 170 cfs?

I never got a chance to get down there this year and run the narrows and now the flow is down to a trickle of 176 cfs. Is it possible to run it like a tiny creek or is it so low that it would just be ridiculous to do it?

We ran it last weekend, not sure what the flow was at the time but it was definitely low. Play or creek boat should be fine.

Yeah, it's runnable at that level, although it's bony. I've run it as low as 100cfs and theres a good deal of rock bouncing. Middle is out of the question until about 1.5' on the rock, but upper and lower are good to go. Probably not worth drivin' from very far though.
If you know anybody that lives close and can check the rock, as long as it's actually on the rock .3'+ you can run it. With the rain the rivers come up so you might be able to catch it today/tomorrow.
