The lower it gets the creekier it gets. If you are going to portage gore/tunnel its not really worth the paddle in. This is just my opinion but bringing your playboat to make the portage easier is not a favorable mind set for gore. Paddling in. . . in a small boat < 800cfs is not that fun. On the other hand, I don't want to discourage you from having a fun time.
