1000cfs is good but bony on the beaters choice line and the middle/right channels. Sieve on the far left side of left rock on Between the Knees. Ran the river left slide to set up for the ledge above the Between the Knees (IV) section of the spill way. Needed to work right to avoid sieve then try to keep between the rocks and over the rest of the mank below. Can also be run from the ledge above instead of the slide but I’d recommend more water for that line, it would be an easier set up at higher levels. To the right of the right knee is the Beaters Choice section of the spillway pictured in the gallery is the line. The middle channel had one main rapid named Dos ledges (III), two ledges with some manky stuff below them. On the far right channel of the spillway there is a 12ft ledge called Dick’s Boof (III) at higher water the far right ledge should be runnable but the main line is in the corner of the big ledge where there is an auto boof. Rocks below so try and keep your head dry channel continues with some class 2 for 200ft then meets back with the river at the bottom of Dos Ledges.
