Thanks for the encouragement.
Even at minus 2.5 ft. it was far from what I'd call boney. We did it in September that year and it was a spectacular trip. A few more rocks showing and a few more pronounced holes, but nothing bad. The big rafts didn't have any problems at Big Mallard, but it was fun to watch them wedge their way through Salmon Falls. Line up, wedge in, let the water build up behind the boat a little, give a push, and pop out like a cork from a bottle of bubbly.
Have a great trip. It's my all time fav, but I had to miss it this year with my stupid fractured femur. I'm bored to tears at home and living vicariously through all my river brothers & sisters.
