That stage reading has nothing to do with anything. 8000 cfs is about 4' on the bridge gauge that old timers use.
This level is kind of medium. It's not stomping but it's not low either. The playboating is better lower. It is pretty low for the Upper, however, which gets pretty slow going below about 12,000 or so.
