We had to get out before big bend due to low water we tried it at 2.5 feet on the Franklin gauge. You nee 3 feet I am sure of that. the water level was good at Petersburg and we stated there on day two. Loved it worth the trip. When we went down chimney slide we failed to scout it. SCOUT IT! There was a tree down and a branch blocking the way it took us all out.
