Yampa Flows

Hey all. Getting ready to raft the Yampa on the 29th. I have done this in big water but never flows this low. What can one expect at flows of 1,000 or less? The last few years has made us good at low water runs. We will have a couple of 16 footers with us though. Any advice would be helpful.

Also, any cool hikes or ruins to check out?

just got off yesterday. rapids are very mild, including warm springs. plenty of time and space to miss everything. flat water through island park is slow and the bugs down there are intense. mosquito infested stagnant pools fron the rapidly receding water are abounding. come prepared! spend as much time in the upper canyon as possible. get out early and beat the wind. fish are hammering hoppers at jones.
