Browns at 500 CFS

Looked like Brown's Canyon was going to be well into the 600s this weekend until the Ark suddenly took a nosedive yesterday (what happened?). Already rallied some folks to join, but assuming it's at 500 CFS or a touch below, would you paddle raft or row? Too bony to make use of the oars? I searched around but couldn't find anything worthwhile. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I would suggest rowing. 500 is still a great level for Browns in late September. Get you some. Here is some info on the flow adjustment:

BOR Update - Thursday, September 26, 2013
The release from Twin Lakes will be cut to 0 today to facilitate necessary gate maintenance.

At 0700, 26 September, the flow will be decreased by 50 cfs.
At 0930, 26 September, the flow will be decreased by an additional 50 cfs.
At 1200, 26 September, the flow will decrease to 0.

By 1400, 26 September, the flow will increase to 50 cfs.

The flow will increase to the final setting for the weekend by 1600 hours. We'll determine that final flow later this morning.
