Family Float Colorado - Newcastle to Silt

Has anyone floated lower Colorado recently? Taking 7 and 8 year olds so want to be mellow and safe. Any advice appreciated.

My wife did this stretch last week, said it was fast moving but no big waves or anything to worry about. She ran it all the way to Rifle. Past silt however she took a right channel and there was a wire fence stretched across the river that created a nasty strainer. This had to be portaged around. Just something to keep in mind if you float past Silt.
