The section beginning at old 33 bridge and ending at the CR7 bridge is nice between 800 and 1100
cfs. If the water flow is less than 800 cfs, then try the next 8 miles of the river. The lower
section is nice between 550 and 750 cfs. For both sections, there are constant class I and II
rapids with short pools between. The scenery is fine and the relatively few strainers can usually
be easily avoided.
