Enough water to oar a MiniMax down Dumont?

I am looking to take the raft out on Saturday and I was wondering if I would be able to use the oar frame at current water levels.

Also, does anyone want to join? Kayaks or rafts welcome!

we just ran the Lawson to kermits yesterday, I personally wouldn't take an oar frame down it some of the lines are getting really constricted...much better to r2 it in that boat if you could

That was what I was thinking. Not sure if the wife is ready for an R2 adventure. Thanks for the advice.

Ran it last night in a 12' cat with oars, still plenty of water.
Gets ugly about 350-375.
