Nickols to HWY 281 is a lot of fun, depending on the flow rate. Using my Ultimate 12 FX, anything below 400cf is not enough water to keep from dragging bottom in the rapids. Lot's of small mouth and Guadalupe bass in that area. If you are just going to run it and not fish, I'd consider just renting a yak from the livery, about the same cost as ferrying your kayak up, and no damage to your yak. The Jackson Riviera they have is not fancy, but it does OK in the rapids.
