Ogden area class III-IV at flood levels

If you are wanting to get out and paddle, but hesitant about the huge flows we have right now, here is a suggested list of runs, in order of difficulty.

Hen-Tag- II-III; must portage Croyden bridge, and stay far left at Taggart hole.
Having a river roll is more important at the high water levels. Get that new drytop, dress warm and practice your roll on Hen-Tag.
Upper South Fork Ogden, II-III. There is nothing like Taggart hole on the upper South Fork, and no low bridges to portage. Still, the bends are pushy, and there is a class III move here and there. While fiddling with a camera on a recent run, I was pushed to the outside of a couple of the bends, and scrambled to get back center.
Rainbow Gardens- this is still III; a great run in spite of some tight brush. I would like to have a work party on this run sometime soon. Its only 15 minutes to Lorin Farr @1600.
89 to Riverdale- Consensus (that I have heard anyway; feel free to give feedback) is that this is still class III as well, although bigger and more consequential than at lower flows. Could call it (and all of the runs above) III+, if you are not paying attention its easy to get pushed into some brush. Some good surfing to be had.
Hot springs putin for Rainbow Gardens- this adds 100 yards of class IV, and a limbo log above the restaurant.
Pineview to Smokey Bear- This is solid IV above ~1300. This is a great run!
Waterfall putin, or "demon down" (lower half of Narrows): this is harder than Pineview at any given level; above ~1350 I'd call it IV+.
