For guide training in early season it seems like we ran full (6-8 people) 14' boats as low as 450 cfs, with some definite hiking in parts. It is really good training though. When i f a line up now and get hung up on a bed of shallow rocks, i think nothing of it, but some other people get wigged when they so much as start having to oar or paddle in shallow waters.
i would love to help you out, but am afraid i would provide a disservice, as the majority of my current rafting is done with oars. When i paddle i tend to go through a bit of learning at the beginning of each trip.
