I wouldn't call anything at this water level class III, imo. You'll have to pay a few bucks to take out at Rancho. If you go up to the road, or ask around at the parking area, it won't take too long for you to find a ride on the weekend. I think the section between Rancho and State bridge is more fun because there is less flat water, but maybe bit harder to work a shuttle. Sunday weather looks bad so there may be fewer folks to hitch from, but usually it is easy hitching on the weekends in that area.
