Recommended flows for West Fork of Clear Creek?

Just wondering what the recommended flows for the West Fork of Clear Creek are. How about the 15 ft'er? Any beta would be appreciated...

I've found that between 200 and 350 is the best. Faster and pushier at higher levels, but F U rocks start to disapear - so its the classic more water = pushier = cleaner. The mandatory above Gunshot eddy catching becomes harder at more water and must be scouted carefully - there are almost no eddies close to the drop, and one must portage an unruly distance.

That said: I'll be on it Friday afternoon (5:30 PM) with a buddy and would love to meet up with some other class V'ers for shuttle.

Ideal levels are 150 c.f.s. to 300 c.f.s., although I have ran it as low as 105 c.f.s. It was real bony but still really fun.
