Lower Blue fishing questions

has anyone floated or observed the lower blue in the last week +/- to know what the water clarity is like below the canyon? saw a couple posts from early season floats, but would like to save the drive time if the water is getting too muddy or murky to fish in the park. thanks in advance.

now seeking info/experience on the "fishibility" of the canyon and the ranch section below the canyon at the higher flow of 1200 projected over the w/e. i have only fished the stretch in the fall at flows up to 800 +/-, so not sure what happens with more water.

any help greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

fwiw, the horseshoe ledges get tougher for the smaller narrow rafts. and if you sit up high in your raft 1 bridge is low at the end but not bad usually about 2g. fishing is best done in pools. and the top 3 miles is a little bigger action in all the rapids but not bad. keep your line in unless you know the area well. best to eddy out and fish or wait till you go under the spring creek bridge

I'm fishing the lower blue tomorrow if you want to run shuttle. I was planning an early day, say 9ish at the GM dam? let me know if you want to work out a shuttle
