is San Miguel Norwood canyon floatable?

Wanted to float the San Miguel through Norwood canyon this weekend. I heard that 500 cfs is best but wondering if I could run it at the current 244 in my 14 foot boat? If not, what about in duckies?

NO!!!!! Need at least 300 at Brooks Bridge all day as the diversion dam is taking 100+ cfs out of the river. I did last week and we were in a 12 and 13 ft cats and it was boney below the dam and some of the wide spots. Also ledges section gets real rocky at about 300 and below.

Also heads up the diversion dam area has changed!!!!!!! There are now rocks all over the front of the dam and just below. Used to try to run as far left as possible, but now NOT the run!!!! Stop and scout!!! Easy scout on left just above dam. I perched for a while on some rocks. Good news no tree problems in that section as of last week, but much wind since then.

You can run Down Valley Park to Beaver at 300 cfs and its a nice run.
