Gila River - Old Safford Bridge to Dry Canyon
We only had 245 CFS for this three day trip but it proved to not be an issue. Had to get out of the boats 2-3 times to float over sand and gravel bars, but didn't have to work at it. Three days at this level is perfect considering the commute and rig effort involved. Participants were John Falhgren, Robert Keating, John Richardson, Matt Williams, and myself. Several more people were committed but dropped out when the water level fell below the 300 CFS minimum we initially defined.
