Predictions for Upper Animas 4th of July Levels?

I'd like to run the Upper A as a 2 day over 4th of July weekend. Anyone have an idea of what flows will be like? Is the train-supported trip still an option? Failing that, any suggestions on other multi-day options?

My prediction is low. Like 1000 cfs in town, 500 in Silverton. Still runnable but not the big water Upper A experience. At that level, the run is scenic Class 3-4. If you are okay with that, then go for it. There won't be any other multi-day options running around here.

Non-Durango area options are also possible; I'll be driving from Denver, but I've got some time to spend on the road if need-be.
