Deckers Chutes Flows

Does anybody know if Deckers will float a kayak where it is now at 158 or when the flows generally start to go up if its too low to go without portage?

Check the other Deckers post.
Yes it is runable at 150ish and the Chutes are doable too just stay river right at the first drop, which I cant seem to do in low water, less than 200cfs.

I've floated the upper 3 miles at 75cfs.

Don't do anything, just stand there.

I've floated through the chutes at 150CFS w/o even scrapping bottom. The run leading up to the chutes and after the chutes you will be leaving some plastic behind though. Still a scenic float and great place to take a newby.
