Sorry a little late with the response, but yes, the Royal Gorge is boatable in a kayak down to native/base flow. However, the lower the water the longer and more boney the float in and out of the Gorge.
Same goes for Browns. You can kayak down to base flow, but once you get below 300ish the float in from Ruby gets painfully low. Boated lower Browns a couple days ago and it was still fun....didn't have to worry about the long float in, and Seidel's and Twin Falls are still fun low. Here are a couple pics:
