I'm not positive about this but I don't really think that guy gets too low. Either way, drove by the put in last week and it looks like you could fit a barge down it

Did the Gunny Gorge this weekend and the river below the Confluence was pretty full. Tough to say how bad sand/gravel bars would be downstream though.

USGS says it's 2190 @ GJ. We did it 3 weeks ago in a heavy 16' at 2000 w/ no problems. You'll be fine.
