Ruby Horsethief float time at 4,500 cfs?

WW permit on the 25th. Thinking of doing Ruby as an overnight beforehand, but don't want to end up rowing a ton on flatwater/headwind. Anyone have a good idea on how long the float is at 4,500?

If you camp at Black Rock and get a pretty early start, you wont get to Ranger Station till after Noon as I recall, maybe close to 1pm. Not bad if you plan on doing an overnight in WW, makes a bit of a late start for doing WW in a day run. Won't see the wind till the afternoon usually though (WW / Windy Corner)

There shouldn't be much difference between 5000 and 4500.
