I was there that week in 1995 - I remember that the Twin Lakes res unexpectedly released extra water right at the peak flow, and the commercial groups didn't realize it was going to jump that high. They freaked out because it was an extra ~1000cfs they weren't expecting.
We were on Brown's that peak day and it was monstrous - the only thing I remember, other than it being a very short and very frothy day, is Big Drop being a GC-style 12' standing wave (the point of reference being the length of the boats we were paddling).
