Whats the Pilar section of Rio Grande like at 400cfs?

Looking at the gauges, Pilar is in the yellow. Anyone have any beta of what the run is like at this level. I have never been on the section, but I was thinking of combining a visit with my dad with a potential run. Any surfing at this level? Too rocky? Still fun? Yes, the water is low, but I am in search of anything that can still float a boat, get some decent surfing and have a fun day on the water.

alright

Sleeping beauty is still fun, it will produce loops and spins, not as good if it drops below 400. Sous hole has a wave above it that is a blast, only downfall is you usually have to carry back to it when flushed, also pretty shallow below if you flip. Worth doing if your bored, plus it's beautiful out. We had tons of snow so if it warms up it may cause a mini runnoff. Adios, Atom...
