Question for you Salt River Black Rock Rapid veterans

I have run the Salt and Black Rock Rapid a number of times.

Must admit I have always had all my attention on hitting the sweet spot on the normal river right line.

Was looking at a video one of us made from a low water run April of this year. The kayaker eddied out in that first eddy river left past the run out.

He did not aim his GoPro to the upstream right BUT I caught a fleeting view of what looked like water coming into the main channel from that side.

Question: Anyone know if at high water (if yes, estimated flow) a line opens up on hard river left at Black Rock?

Not much going on trip wise and I am just passing time looking at videos.

Doubt if I will ever make a run at that level, if I do tho, the left side will be my line of choice!

The right fills in at high flows and is really no trouble to run.
