Low Water Pumphouse run to Rio Rancho

Having not done this run, and it being low (586cfs) would it be a bad Idea to take my 14 ft Cataraft? I’m thinking I’d probably hang up a lot but I’m not sure.

Ok, sounds good, hope to get out one last time on Sat maybe, hopefully flows will hold where they are at now. Thanks for the knowledge!

you should be fine, i ran it earlier this summer on a 15' cat at similar levels and only had a few minor issues past rancho (we took out at statebridge). it was a bit slower than expected, just make sure to factor that in, considering the diminishing daylight.

Was just on that section of river two weeks ago at the same flow and it was fine. You need to pay attention, but there are clear channels.
