What is the lowest anyone has kayaked/IKed the Selway?

Can't get a response over on Idaho Whitewater.
I've happily rafted the Selway down to 1.0 on Paradise.

We are already well below that. Looking at a post season permit. can anyone tell me when it just becomes too low to even IK? I have a high tolerance for rocks and dragging. It would be self support.

My friend's lower threshold for baby boat (AIRE PAC cats) and IK trips is 700 cfs at the USGS gauge.

Did you do a search on IWW? I think there has been some discussion over the years. Back when there was discussion there.
