another resource you may find useful is AW's national database as it gives recommendations/ ratings for more popular, gauged rivers on how they are running in relation to boating. "above recommended", "runnable","lower runnable" ,"below recommended".... or something like that.
here is CO, for example but they cover entire US.
American Whitewater - CO State Rivers
then if you click into an individual run, look at "range" and it lists the boatable CFS range it recommends.
the "above" and "below" recommendations on the AW site are just recommendations, btw. it's not a black and white deal. it's just a starting point for your reference and skills.
