Sounds like they are going to convert 100 cfs of project water to native release which means they won't be cutting it back completely. Should still have 300 ish at Numbers and 350-400 at Browns on Sunday.

You won't be seeing "ELF" flows quite yet. Should be in the 400 cfs range this weekend, and at that flow you can still get a fully loaded 14' raft down with minimal issues. You can take any kind of kayak down you want. Pretty forgiving for novices.
