RangeWater LevelDifficultyComment
250 - 500 cfs barely runnable-med runnable II+ At 500, the top feature is basically a hole on surfer's right and a flat glassy wave on surfer's left.
500 -1700 cfs med runnable-a bit pushy runnable II+ See the comments. Playboaters can play their fool heads off on the top feature at this level.
1700 -2400 cfs a bit pushy runnable-high runnable II+ From 1700 to about 2400, the top feature is still surfable, but the eddy starts to flush and the wave is more of a challenge to get on.
2400 -5000 cfs barely High-extremely High II+ Above 2400 the wave is still there but must be caught on the fly and the lower feature becomes huge nasty hole!
