Is there enough water at the Lyons playpark for some fun later today @120cfs, 1.5ft ?

I am thinking of heading out to check out the Lyons playpark for the first time later today with some buddies and I am wondering how the water is currently. The recommended gage is reading about 120cfs and about 1.5ft deep.

Is this enough water for some beginners to have some fun later today? Please let me know and save me a drive if it's gonna be a wash!

Thanks, folks!

It will be a little bony from Meadow Park to the confluence, but it certainly is better than nothing. You can go all the way to the October hole, which is running around 300 cfs and can provide a bit more excitement. This will give you about a mile of paddling.
