North platte near saratoga wy?

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some beta for the north platte river near saratoga. What's the minimum flow required? I'm expecting a mellow class 1-ish run overnight run in my canoe, maybe starting at the takeout for northgate and going to I-80. But, I'm wondering... Will I have to wait until next season? I don't mind a little boat dragging.

By the waterside I will lay my head.

Way too low now. On normal years, when there is water, I'd stay away from the Six Mile put in (aka Northgate Takeout) if you are looking for "mellow class I".

During a typical year, later in the summer, anything from Bennett Peak to Seminoe Reservoir is considered "mellow class I-ish".
