Ran it on 4/21/16 @300cfs. A cool class I-II cruiser with some elements of class III. About a half
mile before the takeout, the pace picks up. As you cross under the highway it takes on more of a
class IV character with a long continuous rocky rapid. 300cfs was fine until the last stretch.
Seems like 500 would be perfect. Keep your eyes open, there are a few low bridges, some ropes, and
a cable hanging across the river. All easily avoided at 300cfs, but could cause issues at higher
