Yes, 2010 didn't even seem like the Lochsa was going to go over 4', it didn't in May with maybe a brief exception. Then the rain hit, and it went to 7.5, what fun it was! 2011's snowpack was ridiculous, we had flooding in our neighborhood for a month. Even though April/May snowpack was high, some came very late, as the SWE saw a significant rise the end of May/early June. Then it started raining.... This is all a good reminder that river flow is not just snowwpack, you never know what is going to happen. Let it snow!

The trip is the third week of June. So far I think it is four rafts and one kayak.

I'd take my ten year old. Be smart about the floating order of boats. Rent or borrow him a drysuit, get a hi float pfd and go for it. The Main is a BLAST at higher flows.
Put a gopro on his helmet so he can show all his friends back home what a badass he is.
