Deckers is a fun little 2+ run, the 3+miles above the Chutes are boatable from 75cfs (boney & picking lines) and up.
I wouldn't do the Chutes (Class 3 pour overs) with less than 200cfs, below the Chutes (3miles+/- is dragging with less than 200cfs even then you have to pick lines and bounce rocks 300cfs is better.

link to the gauge

So if its flowing 100cfs I'd go.

Post up on you might get some company.

the chutes are runnable below 200CFS. you are going to scrap less in the chutes than any other part of the run because of the river's width. it would be a great starter run for you. its been at 150 all week, which is low, but a good level for your first run.

good luck this season.
