Deckers level anyone boated it?

Can't get a level for Deckers and my girlfriend wants to boat it for her birthday this Saturday 6/25. I've never been, but I'm looking to take her out on something not to pushy. She's a beginner.

Appreciate any info.

I've taken people down it as low as 85cfs, under 100 or so there's tons of FU rocks, but still no big deal.
Discover Denver, stay there!

Ran it earlier at 160. We got down without having to drag our boats, but it was pretty rocky. Take a look at chutes at this level. The first one that isn't much usually was kinda a ledge pour-over.

Alternatively, there is a class II stretch on Foxton. Takeout is about 1/2 mile above where the road from conifer meets the river road, just before things pick up in difficulty. There is a stealth put-in just below boulder garden - drop boats, park above and walk back down. This is a nice 2-3 mile beginner stretch

Damn, wish I could join ya Mag but E and I are headed to Glenwood. Any chance you would want to do it again after work one day? I've got another newbie that prolly want to join too.

Bring her a clean bootie for the takeout!
