poudre rafting at this level?

Was taking some friends from out of town on a commercial rafting trip tomorrow, is it just a lot of rock dodging at this level? I think last time I paddled up there, other than low water early season, was at like 4.5' which was great. Thanks.

The level on Sunday was more like 3 to 3.2. Upper Mish through Bridges is a lot of fun at this level, 4.5 is a lot more splashy, faster, and a bit more dangerous. For the Upper and Lower Rustic sections 3 ft is a bare minimum and for a raft it isn't really all that fun, above 4 is a lot of fun. Hopefully we are going to see a larger peak on the Poudre soon - there is still a lot of snow up high.

I am coming in from Florida on Friday and will be rafting with my family on Sat with Wanderlust. I hope it is not a yawner... And we are rafting Clear Creek on Wed with Mile Hi Rafting...
