What a great run - if you do it at
the right time of year. Unfortunately there is a small window of
opportunity, and it can depend upon the level of spring runoff,
rainfall, and the level set by the upstream dams. We did it on May 28,
1999 - after heavy rainfalls. The water was high and very fast but
were seldom a problem.
Again, after heavy rains in 2014, the river was high and fast, but
there were a few ledges and shallows with rocks.
