Looking partly sunny with highs in the upper 50s for you Murtaugh floaters.
And you will get some sun down in the canyon. I would love to float that again but I will be working all day.... dammit anyway.
Yes it has been done in an oar boat. You will have to deal with running or portaging Pair A Dice. Not a bad portage as portages go, up and over a large flat rock about 70 yards or so if memory serves me correctly.
I don't know the run well and I didn't get in trouble leading it either time I have been down. I wouldn't say it is read and run, but the lines seemed pretty obvious except for Let's Make a Deal which has five options through the islands. I think it's harder to find the put in than to figure out the runs on river. Plan on having a car you can drop on your way in and pray you don't get an upstreamer when you get to the lake.
Do it. It is a lot of fun.
