Swimming ability on Russian River

Family going on canoe trip on Russian River. Grandparents going, not swimmers but far from old and feeble! Curious how the RR is? Is it common for boats to tip? Is it relatively safe?

Since the river is dammed up this time of year the water is very calm. I think the grandparents will do just fine!

It's been awhile but last time I kayaked in summer on the Russian River (near Monte Rio) I don't believe the water was very deep. And not moving all that fast.
