What to paddle in Summit County in Aug and Sept?

Hi, we will be living in summit co. Aug through Oct and I am wondering with the snowpack left, what best guesses are on what there will be to paddle? I am a III/IVish boater. Lived in summit co years ago and remember paddling the ark late in the summer then the lower green on releases and shoshone but i think that was a high water year. Thanks for the help!

i guess i forgot about the dynamics!

i guess it has been so long that i forgot about what fuels the rivers this late in the game! so with rain being the variable now, is it extremely variable what could come up...or are there more probable stretches that are more likely to run given a moderate amount of rain?

Thanks!

Gore usually runs until September. Technically it's in Grand County but it's only about 40 min North of Silverthorne.
