Too Low

600 CFS at the shitplant is my usual cutoff for Wolcott down. Shitplant to Wolcott is even bonier, so a little under a grand sounds about right.

Just did it today. From Treatment plant to Dead Cow. To 5.5 hrs doing some fishing. As long as you have good boat with strong bottom. Did alot of scraping but was worth it. Lots of fun! Seriously
