Sweet paddling the last 2 days. Temps pushing 60. Nice to see multiple parties on the rio yesterday. Have seen 3 smaller rafts on the rio and having fun. Watched a scary heads down pin yesterday. Thankfully, it worked out. Low water still demands respect...

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:
