It probably doesn't matter, as I'll be going out no matter what, but just trying to be prepared.
Oh, I'll be in my little 12' bucket boat, btw.
Thanks Oregon peeps!
There are some decent waves at these flows, but nothing to worry about as long as you are paying attention. There is a rooster tail that forms at these flows about half way through this run. Same place that the tubers all flip during the summer months, it can flip a small raft if you aren't paying attention.
Pipeline is still the only significant rapid, and it does form a pretty decent hole at higher flows, but it is still class III. Make the move abocve ealy and set up to punch the hole and you'll be fine.
