Have you noticed the weather in this area at all? We're still in Sprinter, spring and winter. Although this past weekend was finally warm (sun, 80, which was the first time this year, and I mean it's been cold and rainy not just sunny and 70). And the forecasts are for continued cool wet weather. Bad for our neighborhood flooding, good for long slow runoff. Maybe we'll get spring by July.

Just go off the top at any flow. It is a beautiful place not to be missed.
I say the bigger the raft the better, 18ft boats sit alot h8igher in the water than 14ft boats with the same amount of gear. If it's at 2ft you will be styling.

As for near 7ft, have a solid crew of rafters and kayakers in the water to help if the shit hits the fan. Watch out for Murphs Hole.
