This is shaping up to be an unusual year but the norm is that at best you would be able take a ducky down it.

We went end of March last year and hit it just as it was coming down. I believe we took out and it was in the low teens. Wouldn't want to take gear boats down much lower than that and a lot of it was boney in a playboat at that level.

Granted that was the only time I have been down it and this year there is a lot of snow, but there isn't the altitude to hold it unless it is a cold, wet spring in the south.

Good luck - great trip if there is water. Can't imagine what it is like at these flows :shock:

Am old rafter told me he would do the Salt at 800cfs in his 14ft raft.
Low but doable.

I have gotten a loaded 16' raft down as low as 600cfs but I was past gleason Flats when the water dropped that low. Below 400 I would bet you would be in duckies.
