Rafting near Tacoma

I'm busy all week but have one free afternoon Saturday, and I'm dying to get back on the river. Anybody run the Sky this low before in a raft? I have an Aire Puma (11.5 ft) and was wondering if I could fit down boulder drop at around 1300. Most likely will be R2ing, but might row if my partner bails, with a couple kayaks in tow. The Wenatchee is a possibility but it's farther. Any ideas? Thanks!

The Wenatchee is down to inner tube level at this point. I consider it a float trip below 3000cfs.

September on the Tieton, is your next whitewater in the state unless we get some big rain pushes.

Good luck!

Airplane turn in Boulder should still have water in it, and you should be able to stuff the raft through there no problem.

NF Nooksack and the White Salmon still have water. But yes you can get through Boulder Drop at these flows. lots of good surf around 1000.

and hey there's always Tumwater!
