this run is really best above 6 ft. to 7.5 ft.
by Keith Oliver Beautiful day today - first 70F+ day of the year, Flow info. 6.04', paddled solo from Kelley Park to Milford and shuttled via the bike path - nice level lots of wind, but great workout! Total time about 3 hours. Too bad Rob and Tim weren't here to enjoy it!
Did this run today from Lake Isabella to milford at 7.64 this was an awsome level,Kellys play spot was a decent hole at this level and there were plenty of standing waves to keep us amused on the rest of the run.
by Bryan Jones, also did solo trip from Kelly to Milford on Oct. 30 when level was around 7ft.. Tons of fun and the last part near Milford had lots of fun standing waves. I don't think I would go solo at any higher levels and it probably wasn't a great idea to do it by myself but at that level, there were still plenty of eddies and bypasses of tricky spots.

this run is fun and it does have some play spots, but after the first rapids at the boat club it gets really flat for about 2 miles and then there are some ok playing spots
This is how it breaks down:
5ft is about 500 cfs
7ft is about 3000cfs
Thanks to Bob Ellstrom for this nice conversion!
