When the water level is low enough in the river side channel (usually all months except for mid-June thru August) the river bed is accessible with great footing.  The link below is to the National Weather Service website which measures the water level at the bridge. A main channel water level below about 8 feet equates to the side channel being low enough to cross. use your own judgement, be careful and avoid the areas of glacial silt.
