As long as the lock tender is on duty.

Downstream maybe

Its been years but I do recall paddling down the short section of stream that parallels the locks. You can scout it first.. I took the locks up.. I was in a 14' kayak and lightly loaded.

There are instructions for how to operate the lock yourself if the lock tender is not on duty. It's pretty easy and "almost" foolproof, although someone did purposely mess things up not long ago.
