Min level to packraft escalante, Fence to Coyote

Hello
What is the min level someone has run the Escalante from Fence to Coyote? Please be sure to clarify in feet on the gage and cfs as there has been some confusion over the years on the unit used.

Heading there first week of April, I hope.

I was at a party Sunday where a woman gave a slideshow about her trip. She hiked in, she didn't start at the road, there was 1 CFS on the gauge when she hiked in and there was about 60 CFS when she ran it due to a rainstorm. She said it was fine in Packrafts.

I could probably get you in touch with her if you PM me.

There is no clear correlation from the gauge to what you will find downstream.

I can only give a data point from April 14, 2005. See photos taken at Fence campsite and at the putin where it looked a little rocky. We hiked down Fence, camped, and waded across to Neon and Ringtail. The water was plenty for pacrrafts, about high thigh - waist deep. Wish I was there in a few weeks!
