We ran the Happy in packrafts and found it really good for that. The water level was neither high (not in the bushes) nor super low. We ran it in July over three days, flying in to Sheep Lake and hiking out to Finger Lake from the Skwentna. It's a great river for surfing and practicing eddy-outs in a packraft. Also enjoyed running a few side creeks. The section upstream of Indian Creek was our favorite -- loyts of granite boulders and super views of the Alaska Range. More details at Here's a video:
