here's a link that's useful to see the current water level: http://www.vankayak.org/capcam/ Never tried the cap but I read if the level is between 3-5 it's good (someone might correct me). right now its below 1

The water level camera is showing 7-8 today, does this mean that is good to give it a try or is still too early?

Personally i think is bit high and early still ,remember safety first, those rocks are very slippery. Good luck.

Yes, this river can be very dangerous. Heard on the news that a dog had to be rescued after slipping in.

The Cap is a dangerous small river claiming many lives in the past. It looks innocent most of the times, but when it floods, people can risk their lives fishing it. Don't stand on the rocks at the Cable Pool when the water below is fast. Don't risk your life for a fish. So when the river floods or when the water is high, stay away or if you have to fish, choose a safe spot where any accidental fall is not going to cost your life.

The first incident was near the Capilano suspension bridge area and the second was at the Lynn Canyon area.   

Just be careful ,don't risk your life over a fish

7-8 is blown out. Only a few pockets are fishable. 3-6 is what you want. And yes I think its still early.
