Although the same river, these two sections have very different optimum flows.
500 is a good low flow for Elevenmile, and that same 500 is slightly pushy for Cheeseman. Elevenmile would be great with 800, and that is probably too much for most of the Cheeseman rapids.
That said, Cheeseman is a woody mess right now, so 1200cfs might help flush out the wood. Maybe we can start with a high water release, and then drop it down over the course of draining.
