Minimum boatable flows in this reach are around 300 cfs. Since the Borel Powerhouse diverts about 600 cfs, releases from Isabella Reservoir need to be at least 900 cfs before this section is boatable. The dreamflows.com graph above shows the amount of water remaining in the river after the powerhouse diversion.
Flow information is provided by the Army Corp of Engineers, at Isabella info
