How fast will I float?
From March to October, water is released at an average rate of 1,500 cubic feet per second (cfs), which translates to a river flow of two miles an hour. The average canoeist can do three to four miles an hour with paddling. From October to March, release rates drop to about 300 cfs, and that means a very slow river that depends on vigorous paddling.

Plan your float for a weekday. You are more likely to have the water to yourself and are more likely to see more deer, turkey, eagles and other wildlife.
