Virgin River Late April

I am planning a trip to southern utah in the end of april and would like to boat the Timpoweap canyon section I 've heard mixed reviews whether it is to gnar but I saw there is 2 put ins one is below the first 3 class V rapids, after this does the run lose its gnar factor or does it continue on. also if anyone has any feedback about the sections up stream the temple and the zion narrows

There is lots of information on existing threads for you to read and get up to speed on the current situation there.

First see this one:
Problems on N.F. Virgin River Narrows

Then this one:
Virgin River; Zion Narrows beta wanted

Late April should be a good time to go, I may be there as well...but please read the threads. The Narrows is in danger of being shut down completely to boaters.

I have been told there are about 12 solid class IV rapids and one ugly V in the Temple.
