Browns at 300 in a Tomcat

Has anyone done this stretch at low flows? Thinking about trying to get one last summer run with a tomcat. Thanks

Ran it last year with a some people in a tomcat. They got pinned toward the end and I had to help get them off the rocks. This could cause some boat damage at 300 ish cfs. I would not suggest doing browns at that level in a tomcat based on my personal experience.

Here's a video clip of Zoom Flume at 300.

Sure you can do it...the commercials are still running 14'ers at this flow. I have taken flat-landers through Brown's in duckies at this flow as their 2nd trip on the river, usually get a swim or two...don't expect much in the way of whitewater though, mostly rock dodging.

No problem. I got my 16' down at this level. I got stuck once (maybe twice) but had a great time.

Get some dude. You'll have a blast. The water is warm and the sun is out.
