I agree with basil we just paddled from little d to cisco yesterday and it was pretty much a perfect level. Every move and set up was easy to make and the wave trains in staircase are still very big and consequence free.
I'm not sure if the right line is there for kayaks yet in skull, was pretty hard to see.
SITM seemed a lot more like a horizontal breaking wave then a v-wave running it yesterday. You could kind of skirt it on the right edge, but it was very straight forward lining up for the big meat of the wave in the middle. Not really many sideways laterals to throw you off line.
We floated the entire stretch after the rapids and still didn't take terribly long - was about 6-8 beers worth in length for me, not sure what that was time wise.
