It's a low flow with rocks to avoid but can be successfully navigated in a raft if you don't mind some mild raft abuse - the smaller the raft better.

I would disagree. Run Bridges - FP is way too low.

I am taking so new people rafting so what is a good easy section to run? I just moved to Broomfield Co so I don't know the rivers. Any good ideas I am looking to go this weekend.

Arkansas river near Salida - East Salida boat ramp to Rincon is a good beginner friendly 8 mile run. The Poudre is fun at these low flows but it's technical and not exactly for the beginner crowd unless the raft guide is experienced. Just my two cents.
