If Palisades Reservoir is at 5576' is there sufficient flow to float Sheep Gulch to Palisades Take Out? AW says 5542' is acceptable, but doesn't give a max level for runnable flows...

The narrows is really fun at that flow. The only inhibiting factor is the level at palisades reservoir. If the lake is low, go for it, best rapid on the river for low water

You misunderstand my question. Flow is 4500 cfs, lake level is 5576 feet. Is there current to the take out with the lake at 5576 feet?

Gotcha, there should be flow to alpine. We always would drive to the bridge and look to see if its flowing down there, it only adds 15-20 min to your shuttle. Also, i recommend putting in at kahuna if youre kayaking to skip the upper section
