I ran it once in a raft at about 5K cfs. It'll be faster than at low water, but its basically a float - you could probably canoe the entire reach without getting the inside of the canoe wet. Whatever you do, give yourself plenty of time to hike in Dominguez Canyon.

in case you're a climber, there are some routes in dominguez that were established in the last few years. There are 5 that i know of, and are generally within a half mile of the confluence of the creek/gunny - keep your eyes open for the obvious lines.
