Launched on June 19th in 2006, water was dropping, had already peaked but still moving. I paddled my Jackson SuperFun, others in the group used similar boats play/run boats. We spent 3 days on the water, took off at Spring Bar the afternoon of day 3 - about 30 miles a day with around 6 hours on the water per day. The flat water was moving and all but eliminated any active flatwater paddling, less that of catching up to the rafts after playing around.
With our group anyone could hop a raft if they were too tired of kayaking or just wanted a turn to row.
Enjoy the trip!
