Lows Lower Dam has lowered the water level at least a foot. If you stick to the main river channel you'd be fine. But the urge to cut corners for me was overwhelming and more often than not I'd get bogged down in mud. Once above the upper dam, the floating bog required me to climb out on semi-solid land to drag my kayak over one spot, but was not too difficult.

Here are some photos:
1) launch at the lower dam
2) the bog (looking toward the upper dam) - you can step on some parts of these logs and the semi-firm ground on the right while pulling your canoe/kayak through.
3) evening sunset over Lows Lake from the campsite
