Lower Yakima Boat Launch & Flows

Looks like I may need to run to Kennewick tomorrow for some family business in the afternoon and may have most of the morning to fish. Not knowing a thing about bass fishing or the lower Yakima, I see the flows are 1350. Is that enough water to launch and run upstream a ways in a small jet boat? Where is a good launch to do this?

Water is very low as of today. Daughter floated West Richland Bridge to Duportail. Normal 2 hour float took them 4 1/2 hours. They were flushing to get sockeye up the river, but that seems to be over. I would either wade or fish the Columbia. Easy access and good fishing all along Lesley Grove and Howard Ammon parks in Richland as well as most other parts of the river.
new member here, from idaho and will be in the priest rapids area this weekend and was wondering about access in that area for sockeye, kings, any help would be really appreciated
