Seems like this question comes up every year -- not sure whether you can check the archives, seems like they're down?

Anyways, you *can* run it at 75cfs, but it's pretty bony. I did so a few years back, still had a good time, but running class V creeks isn't my forte. I also ran it at 250, and it was very fast and pushy -- no eddies, had to remember all three gorges from a scout. Ran the 3+ miles in under 20 minutes. Very fast...

If you want to get an idea of what it looked like, I have some pictures on my site -- although it was too fast to take many.

At 60-70cfs:

At 250cfs:

I think that most people wouldn't consider running it under 150cfs or so... if I remember past discussions. Hope this helps,

Yikes! At 500 cfs it probably takes about 10 minutes to run all three canyons... Maybe I'll work my way up to that :) Do all the features wash out at that level?

Its worth boating at 125CFS (I wouldn't drive more than 45 minutes for it)

From 150 CFS to 350CFS is fun.

350CFS get pushy but still fun

It should be at 125 or more by Saturday or Sunday....It'a really hot down here.

Hope this helps
