Is the current level of 250cfs enough for this run? I'm hoping to run it for the first time this spring and I noticed American Whitewater recommends 500-1800cfs.

Thanks for the info!

Southwestpaddler.com has this river in two stretches:
Upper:
the upper is the stretch in the little grand from fuller bottom to to the campground. 150 cfs as minimum and 300 being optimum


Lower:
is the stretch that starts after the campground and goes through the black box area which needs the cfs that american river reads.

after 600 the lower stretch gets a little rambunctious

Fattire answered your question....250 is certainly enough flow for packrafts, duckies, and canoes.

What is a best guess for minimum flows in a 13’ raft (R2 or R3)?

Roddy: There is some Youtube footage on the San Rafael. Check it out. It seems tight for a raft. Unless you have something like a Puma that is really narrow and sporty.

Anyone run a bike shuttle on this run and/or have an idea of road mileage from takeout back to the put in?

Bike shuttle would work on this if doing fuller bottom to swinging bridge take out. Prob a 2 hr bike ride...
