yup

anything from Upper Mishiwaka through Bridges. You can run that all the way down to 3' (~600 cfs).

Filter plant for a shorter more mellow float.

2005 season I ran my 13' cat from Stevens down thru Bridges every weekend until August when it got down to about 1.5'. Its alittle tight, but still runnable in a cat if you stay in the main channel and straddle a rock here and there. Pine View is really tight in an oar frame below 2.0'. Generally below 2.0', alot of spots have only one line you can take. Really, I dont ever remember pushing my boat to often.

I think this is a great level for a cat!

Let me know if you want to run Spencer down through bridges this Sunday. I may oar but if I can get paddlers I will run it with some folks schlepping.
