I went over here today (4-29-14). The level was about 380cfs and way to low for my taste. Had to wheelchair over a few places. There is a lot of potential here though. Lots of gradient loss over a short period. I would recommend the lower runnable threshold be moved up to at least 400 maybe even 450cfs.
i was dissapointed running this section in my kayak. i'm not confident that there is a level between not enough water and too much water to run this section. after walking back up to the top and ditching the gear, i had a blast sliding down the rocks on my behind. i would definatly recommend a family picnic here
