Dam-it or not?

Is going whitewater rafting on a dam-release day
on the Lehigh River in May significantly better than going on a non-dam-release day
the last week of April?

I am trying to organize a trip for a large group to go whitewater rafting. Our ideal date is at the end of April but it unfortunately does not land on a 'dam-release date.' The first dam-release date happens two weeks later in May AND costs a few dollars more per person. Last year, we went on a dam-release date and it was extremely fun; I wouldn't want this year's trip to disappoint.
My question is: does it really make a difference? The woman at the company said it did but it's hard to believe if she's being entirely truthful or just hoping to make a few extra bucks. It is still spring after all and still pretty cold so far.
Can anyone with more experience rafting on this river lend some answers? :)
