It would be crazy to see those 2011 June follows again. I think this year is shaping up to be more like 2010, which was still a good year. We floated it in June in an Aire super duper puma with 2 peeps a dog and going normal style, not really light. However, we have run down from Rome many times. When the river gets down near 1000 I would not want to be in a 16' raft, though it can be done. I have no problem taking the 14', but narrow, aire super duper puma down there at the flows we had in mid June 2010 (down to about 700 cfs), and would not hesitate to go when the flow is above 500 cfs in a 14' or smaller raft. This is not the norm. Most folks don't raft it when it is below 1000 cfs or so. There is a good chance it will be in 500 to 600+ cfs range in early to mid-June. But doubtful it would be much more than 1000 cfs unless we get some serious more snow and it comes off slowish. The reservoir will fill up a lot more this year by the time late spring/early summer comes around so take out at Birch Creek unless you can arrange for a tow out.
When rowing a raft and getting down below about 1500 to 1200 cfs, make sure to scout nuisance rapid. It is defenitely tight for a 14 foot raft or larger especially below 1000 cfs. It is hard to determine when you are approaching this rapid, and the scout along the bank sucks, but lots of folks pin badly here at low water on either the 1st or 2nd huge boulder that you have to make a tight quick s-turn ferry right then left to avoid.
Alternatively, use IK's and have a great trip guaranteed. The small mouth bass fishing in June should be ridiculous, using kayaks it is totally fine to paddle out on the reservoir to Leslie Gulch. If you do that plan on camping at echo rock hot springs along the reservoir, it is really nice. Also plan on camping at Leslie Gulch at take out and exploring for a day or 2 before heading home
The Raf as it was packed for the above 700 cfs trip.
Or go Kayak style
