Westwater in August

Hi, anyone wanna take a stab at what Westwater is gonna look like by the second weekend in August? I've seen the canyon at every level between 3000 and 43000 cfs, but I'd imagine it'll be a bit low this year. Levels and run descriptions would be great! Thanks!

Last week we were on it at 2400. All the rapids have rocks sticking out where you haven't seen them before... not a big issue, go around them. Funnel Falls was pretty narrow and roaring with a big hit at the bottom, great fun.

Skull, Razor Rock is out of the water and Skull Rock is all but out at 2400. We tried hard to go left between the pour over rock and Razor but gave up and went down the right side, down the wall to the left of Skull Rock. Just pull the oars in and squirt through like a turd down the toilet.

I had a great time. We ended up with a couple of rafts purched on rocks for a few seconds and I snapped an oar when I slammed it into the wall at Skull, but still had a lot of fun.

I doubt it will get much below 2000.
