AS a pretty conservative boater I say. Put in below the obvious water fall and the rest is good. Some people walk the first drop of barrel but it usually goes fairly well. It was 1800 this afternoon and that looked pretty padded out. I think something funky was going on with the dam but just know that if you subtract 1400 from dotsero that is usually your flow giver take. For a first time I would recommend 2500 or less but i don't know that for sure.
