Just ran WW yesterday 7/1 it was running 17,000+. Ran it two weeks ago at 15,000 and last year at 18,000. Grandyoso, not sure when you were planning to run but if it was shortly after your post the river actually came up due to flashes up stream. In my opinion the level yesterday was the biggest I have ever seen it. The 5 O wave at Funnel was huge but easily missed by pulling right over the right lateral. We hit the wave (not on purpose) surfed were able to punch through and had a big ride in the left wave train. Another in our group almost flipped in Surprise, stay left there. Skull was almost impossible to make the left cut very pushy toward the center. The key is to be patient which is hard to do and go past the mess on the top left and start pulling as soon as you see the laterals settle. Again very hard to make the pull. Only one in our group had a clean line, the rest of us got left enough to pull away from the Rock of Shock (you do NOT want to hit the rock) but pretty much ran most of Skull down the middle. There is no big hole at this level so hitting the waves as long as you are on the left side was not a problem. Sock and Last Chance straight line down the middle, we were glad that the last two rapids were just fun wave trains w/o consequences.
Our group has lots of white water rafting experience and have done WW at almost every level. We all agreed that at this level you do not want to be swimming and you need to know what your doing. We all were rowing 14 foot self bailers with the floors soft.
