We have a permit for Sept. Any idea of whether or not there will be water?

I ran the Smith last year in late Sept with my 13' Super Puma. The put in was running at 200cfs. It was work navigating around the rocks and little fishing. I'd do er again any time over 200

It's a long ways off, but I'd bet she's a no go this September! Like spider, I've run it as low as the mid 90 cfs range. One of those trips was WORK, 11 hours to get to indian springs (that's 6 miles)! The other was planned better and went just fine with fairly light boats. We did not go back packing style but most of the cast iron stayed home and we went with no more than 2 people per boat. I think the later in the year you can go the better, the water should come up as the irrigators stop irrigating, usually mid sept to early October depending on the year.
