Rio Chama?

Does anyone have info on this Rio? Can you get a 15' oar rig raft down it? What would be a minimum flow for that if it is possible?
Thanks,
Phil

chama

I'm not positive about flows but I took a 14' oar boat down the chama in mid-June last summer as my first ever self run trip. It was no problem whatsoever. I want to say flow was about 1100, but not positive. Awesome trip, not much in terms of challenging water but the scenery is fantastic and we didn't see another person for 2 days. Did you get a permit?

Thanks so much for the info folks. We don't have a lottery permit but we're hoping to catch it this month before one is required.
