Shoshone < 2000cfs?

What is Shoshone like under 2000cfs? I have a 14' cat with 10' oars and was planning to run it tomorrow but I was surprised to see the level at 1900 today! Wondering if I'll have any issues with my raft size and wingspan through there?

With your wingspan I would look at tombstone if you haven't seen it at low levels. It changed a few years ago and got pretty tight to use your oars. Make sure you set up and your boat is moving left around the guard rocks. Expect to bump the pourover rock below. Get more than half your raft past it and you will be fine. It is still changing but at its tightest I have fit my 16' cat with 10' oars through at 1500 cfs.

Funny - I've never thought of Shoshone above 1200 as being "low water"
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
