What is Cataract Canyon Running at in Early July?

I have a trip planned for Cataract Canyon putting on July 5th. I was wondering in anyone knows about what the flow is going to be like around then. This is my first Cat trip so any other advice would be greatly welcomed. Thanks!

Nate

That's the Colorado near Cisco, it doesn't take into account the Green, which is combined to get the flow in Cat. So add another 8-10 according to the same graph on the Green river.

Probably not the high water your looking for but still a great trip. That is one of my favorite runs. Have a great time.
