Lower Clear Creek - How Low is Too Low

I am interested in running from rigger down to the water park. I have run the lower section at >400 CFS but it is now at 270 CFS. Is this too low?

I know it won't be at its best, but will it still be enjoyable?

I enjoy LCC down to 200 cfs. Gets pretty boney there, but still enjoyable. Should be fine at 270.

good to go

we ran it last friday at around 280. It was fine. a little bony but still very doable.

We are going again tomorrow, if you want to meet us at the white water park at 630 you can cruise down with us.

I'll be in a red ford ranger with a yellow delirious.

my cut off is 250. At 250 it is bony but the major rapids are still fun. I did Upper last night and to be honest I thought that has a lot more cool features and I really didn't think that was as bony. The only problem is that you don't finish at the play park.
