The river is running quite quickly still. There were some beefy 4x4s that were making it across, but unless you have something with 15-18 inches of clearance, don‘t even bother. If you cross early in the day, between 10AM and 3PM you should have low water. We crossed of foot both times and at 6PM on 7/2 it was very difficult. However, on the return after Missouri on 7/3 we crossed at 2:45PM and the river was very manageable. Be sure to make your crossings earlier than later, it will save you a change of clothes (in both the literal and figurative meanings).
