CO River below Hoover is flatwater

The CO River below Hoover Dam is pretty tame, all flat water. But, the current can be pretty strong.
I've read about James Manke paddling the Grand with a GP and a sea kayak. One of the articles about his trip said that one of the people in his group had some difficulty using a GP in the rougher sections, but they figured out how to make it work even though a GP isn't really ideal for whitewater.
I may hold off because the wind in Lake Mohave can get really strong and create a lot of chop and big waves. I'm thinking that I need a lot more practice bracing with it before I rely on a GP on a long paddle trip.
