This post may be too late to do any good, but I saw it a month ago and there was a log across the river left channel of the first class V drop where you would normally go right, so now you would really want to go right. Then again, it may be gone with higher water. Last year I was with a group running it at 1000ish and our probe boater got caught in the hole behind the boulder and surfed for close to a minute. It's an easy portage. Hope all goes well!
