Flows around 5,000-10,000 cfs are a good level. At lower flows, rapids become a bit more drawn out, but still fun. At higher flows many of the features wash out but it can be an exciting ride for those with the skills to handle the action (rescues at high water can be very challenging and it's no place for anyone without a strong roll). Summer flows are typically in the 2000-3000 cfs range (10-12 hours of boating) while spring flows around 20,000 cfs can make for a fast trip (6 hours).
