Gore at low water

Probably am going to run gore sometime next week and I haven't done it lower than 800, wondering what the lines are like at lower water. Is the sneak still there on gore, does anything change drastically? Thanks for beta.

Zach.

Ran it at about 450 cfs a few weeks ago.

Applesauce: 450 or so is probably the last level you can run the normal line. At really low levels you can run it on the left.

Gore: at that level only the meat line would go and it was wierd. You could see gilligans island was undercut, and the sneak is a sieve at that level, professor looked real bad too.

Pyrite: had to run the meat line, fun boof.

Tunnel: Ran the meat, that hole is still scary. Friend ran the hairy fairy into the sneak chute, said it was a class III move at that water level.

Otherwise it was just a bonier with very little push, still fun overall.

If you catch the eddy and run the right slot at Tunnel, watch out for the rock just under the surface at the top of the eddyline. It contributed to a flip, quick roll, and backwards line over the meat for me a couple years ago. Oh yeah, and a swim, too.
