It is being proposed to me that we run the Eagle River from Eagle to Edwards in July. I'm looking for opinions on running it with kids 7 and under. I have many miles of river experience, but have somehow never run any part of the Eagle. Looking on AW, there are several mentions of scout options on named rapids which I take to mean that we could potentially have little ones walk if we feel the need. My concern is that with the large snowpack and potential higher flows, scout stops and eddies may be few and far between.
Thoughts? Specific to the Eagle-Edwards section do the rapids wash out at higher flows or get bigger and munchier?
I have 13' raft and monster 15' cat as boat options both with oar setups. I've heard the Eagle can be quite narrow. Kinda concerned a the 15' cat might be too big/wide, but in same breath I just took the large lady down Browns on the Ark at 800 this weekend. She's quite nimble for her size.
All opinions welcome.
Edit - this is the section I'm referring to.
