Anyone familiar with the Salt willing to give their predictions what will happen in the next few days? I know river flow forecasting is a rough guess at best. Forecasts were showing it dropping today and tomorrow to around 3500 now the opposite of 8,000-10,000. Supposed to launch tomorrow. Thoughts?

I have a permit for March 27 and would appreciate any input on rapid details at higher flows. I have watched numerous YouTube videos up to 4000 cfs, but haven't found much above that. Any intel on the river at 5000 cfs, 6000 cfs, 7000 cfs, or 8000 cfs. I am trying to figure out how high is too high for my group.
Thanks - this is very helpful.

I saw John Sells video where he launched at 7500, but it dropped quickly down to around 3000 when he hit the bigger rapids.
