If you can catch it. As with the St John, your schduling flexibility will go a long way towards hitting the best levels.
We did 5 days and nights from 3rd Lake outlet to Whitneyville. It was very low which made some of he rapids easier and some too scratchy to run at all.
Starting at Third Lake cuts out the big lakes but there's still a LOT of slackwater between Lower Holmes and Great Falls with more from Great Falls to Whitneyville.
We did our own shuttle. IIRC that took us 2+ hours on each end.
