I solo canoed the Verde the beginning of March 2011 when it peaked above 2000 CFS.
This video gives a good feel for the whitewater day run below Beasley Flats with the exception that the lead-in rapid to Verde Falls is tricky.
I continued down to Horseshoe Reservoir for a 5 night trip. Here's a shot from below Childs in the Mazatzal Wilderness:
The main hazard on the run is strainers due to lines of willows crossing the river like this:
That isn't the worst spot and I was able to run it without portage because of previous "beavers" at work.
There's also a blowout channel below Childs that takes most of the flow over a steep rocky slide and leaves the main channel to low for most rafts at even high water.
