Westwater in August

I'm interested in getting a permit to run Westwater in mid-August. Any thoughts on what to expect (in general and for that time)?

Its great - hot, warm water, and the river is at a fun level. Permits are also very popular then so make sure to call in ASAP when your date comes up to get one.

What to expect? A good drunk. Best to start early and have at least a 12 pack in you before hitting Little D. Of course that is my philosophy with that run even in the "Terrible Teens". My daughter stated soloing Westwater in a Ducky at age 13 in the warm August water. Usually it is flowing 3,000 to mid 4,000 depending on rainfall that time of year. Good time of year to run it. Mid week permits are fairly easy to come by.
