Zoom Flume at 600cfs???

I am heading up to the Ark the last weekend of July. Looks like 600cfs with releases till then. I ran the ark at 1500 cfs earlier this year and Zoom Flume was a blast. What does it look like at 600 cfs? I want to take my wife with me in an inflatable kayak, and that is really the only place of a bit of concern. She did really well in an inflatable on the middle fork of the salmon a week ago cruising pretty easy through a couple class III rapids and a bunch of class II stuff.

The run is center left, cutting right before the main rock at the bottom center left. There is one hole of concern that can be punched or run left against the bank. Exposed rocks line the right side of the rapid. In a ducky, it's an easy portage along the tracks if you are intimidated by the looks of the hole, so go for it!

It's a III and easier than the MF. At 600 cfs it is rocky, however. Scout on the left along the RR
