Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...

Last September we took our Trail Life Troop on kayak/canoe trip from Smithville to Plum Park. It was a blast. From what I can remember the flow rate was around 700+ cfs. I looked today and it is 5500+ cfs. Age structure is 12-21 with adults. My question is concerning our younger paddlers, what flow rate would you deem too much? Trip is first part of June so I would expect rate to come down by then.

I wouldn't try it with youngsters, unless they have experience, and you have some really good releases signed. Problem I can see is the current sweeping canoes into trees and tipping over, don't think there are any serious rapids to contend with. I went for a short float last weekend and fought the current while trying to fish, and it won.
