less floatable than 2011 no doubt in a fully rigged 16' raft, 2011 was one of the longest Owyhee conventional rafting float seasons ever.
2012 had plenty of time to get a trip down from Rome. My analysis based on the recorded discharge at Rome combined with my personal minimum flow limits for various water craft on this stretch (Rome to Birch Cr.), starting in March 2012:
Conventional rafting with a 14' raft and all the fixins: floatable March 7 to April 16,
Light raft (leave the cooler, the huge lounge chair, and wood and charcoal, but bring the beers, and 1 person per boat): floatable April 17 to May 5,
IK (double Lynx full loaded): all of the above time periods, plus May 6 to June 18.
Not sure what you mean by no window in the Spring 2012
