Heads up to anyone paddling this run in the 1200-1400 cfs range. The nature of the river changes drastically from S-Turns to Double ledge. The rock gardens in between the two become formidable rapids in their own right. I would consider this area one long continuous rapid with breaks here and there. Be ready for big holes/pour-overs and a serious workout. And make sure to scout Double ledge, that boy gets massive!
Be sure to check the level at the paddler's gauge on the Rt. 614 bridge in Williamsville. 2ft is the maximum recommended level on the guage. This coincides roughly with 1300cfs on AW.

Ran it this morning at around 800 cfs. It was a blast! No major hazards whatsoever. A few strainers partially blocking some rapids, but all easy to see and avoid.

I'm putting the minimum at 220 cfs now people have run it as low as 180 cfs but I think some people are a bit more willing to put up with boat abuse than others! My personal minimum for a fun level is currently around 500 cfs. Everyone feel free to give me some feedback on the minimum or let me know a good max level by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you all!
