That or the week after is when we normally head down.
We just pay a company to shuttle the vehicles so I am not sure of the length anymore. Drove it once myself while buddies were rigging and remember it being in the half day range to do it yourself.
That time can be t-shirt weather and mid-70s but it can also still snow on ya. Go prepared. Always had a blast with the relative solitude then as most spring breakers get off from late-March to early-April so you beat the first rush.
Lake Powell should still be going down by then. It normally drops about .15 feet a day through that time of year. Flow should be well past Hite now. Hite will be high and dry and not best not even considered an option.
Enjoy the rapids....several of them are a blast at low flows. Big Drop 3 is relatively simple if you hit the obvious entry. The "newer' rapids below there are my favorite. We found plenty of camping that time of year last year, as long as you aren't expecting anything pretty below Imperial region.
