What is lowest folks have run SNAG at in a raft? I have hit it at 1200cfs...pretty boney. I have heard under 1000cfs is highly unadvisable???

You can run it all much lower than 1000. I believe we ran it all around 5-600. "Highly unadvisable" seems like bad beta to me.

The Dolores River guide recomends a portage below 1000 cfs...but it is really Old. It also says that over 2000cfs Snag is a class V which I know is not the case....

I'm planning on setting a shuttle tomorrow night and running from pump house (Mtn. Sheep) on Thursday morning to the Colorado (Monday-Tuesday). The San Miguel will give a big bump if they drop before the weekend. I've got a definite crew on the end (bedrock to Colorado) but need to set shuttle...anyone else setting a shuttle near Moab?
