I've done it in a paddle boat. In October. In a snowstorm. With fierce upstream winds. As a day trip. Actually, it was my first real raft trip. And then I became a commercial guide/HB for 10 years. It was awesome. Do it!

Go ahead and paddle. I've run R3, single day in April and October with no problems except for running out of beer before Cisco.

Skip the Raft and grab a Shredder. They're big black and real fast.

PS- they due fine in the wind.
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

^^^This. Shredder FTW! Although my aforementioned experience in a paddle raft was "awesome", it also kinda sucked. It was a long paddle. With more water it would've been shorter. We were gassed, and cold by the time we hit Cisco.
