Ok water is too high for my comfort, would you recommend running from below Fractions to Fisherman's Bridge or Heckla to Big Bend/Salida - Sorry I have only run the Numbers and Browns and dont know much about the other secitons. Thanks

I'd still do browns.
BV-> Johnson's Village has some class III and fairly continuous sections
Johnson's village -> Fish bridge starts out with fairly continuous Class II and doesn't have many spectators to help with gear
Fish->Ruby might be a good run. If folks seem to have the hang of it, continue into Browns
Stone Bridge-> Salida is mostly Class II, with one completely terminal dam (boat chute on left last time I was there) Maybe another good option.

The reason I say do Browns is that there will be a bizillion people to help with gear collection and the water is just high side of medium, a great level!

the last two options you have mentioned might be best.

I feel that from frog rock rapid down to the bv play park or through to the browns canyon put in would be a step down from browns at these levels.

class 3 for sure, with swift water. I would look at the whole BV playpark before putting on, if it looks like fun, then from frog rock down would be a good warm up leading to the PP crux and then slowing back down as you get closer to the browns put in, your take out.

If the BVPP looks like a big step for the beginers, I would look at the big bend run. It will be a step down from what you saw at the BV park, and is a longer run if you go all the way to salida.

At these flows, how long does it take from Heckla to Salida?
