I did it at 175 years ago (not on purpose) The individual drops were ok, but the rest was pretty scrapey. You can definitely get down it.

Would I do it? no 250 is my cut off and then only if I haven't been in a while

Ditto what Frank said... The lowest I've done it at was 150. The rapids were OK, but the flatwater at the beginning and end was brutal. My cutoff is also 250 cfs.

NF at bailey is 68, NF at pine is 161 last check. Lots of flow coming in the side creeks. Probably want to get close to that minimum on the upper gauge before dropping in. Watching and waiting.

We have had some more snow in that area since the post about flow predictions. Might get a little decent runoff for bailey.

I guess I am too.

Thanks for the feedback.

My first few runs were at 175 and 165. Lowest I ever did it at was 145 (accidental - guage dropped after we left home). I love the more technichal nature of the lower levels, but the price is a tortuous paddle out. I'd say my cut off is 165, but if Connie is at 1000 (Skatepark Wave), I'll wait for it to break at least 225.
