Moab Daily at High Water

I did a quick search and didn't see any information on the Moab Daily stretch at high water. Is it washed out or do the rapids get more exciting? Planning on this weekend. Thanks.

I ran it last year at about this time and I think about this flow. It was fun, nothing hard, fun for my 5 year old. The lines were all easy to read from the boat; I scouted 'Whites' but as it turned out didn't really need to. Have fun.

My impression of it is that there are only rapids at high water. Probably the more water the better. I looked at it around thanksgiving and the whole thing was flat.

I did it in a raft a few years ago at around 20k and I remember wishing there were more waves. As I recall it is like big water II+.

I ran that a few years ago at about 24k. Yes there are some big waves, but that is about it. Class II big water. The only big hole I remember was in Professor rapid about 1/ 2way. The hole was river center and was a great ride down the center.

The hole on river right in Whites will flip a raft in high water.
