I wouldnt know on levels at that time of year but below is a link to river levels in the area, we had planned on doing similar and coming back via Austria from Slovenia at the beginning of June but the Alps had high rain levels and Austria was mental meaning limited chances to paddle so unfortunately had to opt out.

At a guess the Otz valley will have plenty to do especially if its hot as its all glacial.

Dam releases on the Inn will also provide fun on Tosens/Inn Shoot/ Landeck Gorge. Sanna / Trisanna / Rosanna will all be too low unless its rained.

If its raining then the Brandenburger Ache near Kitzbuhel might also go - I've not done it but have heard good things.

If you don't already have it get this app on your phone http://www.riverapp.net - it has all the river guages in Europe (including UK)

The following websites are also useful https://4-paddlers.com and http://www.rivermap.ch/info-home.php (particularly in combination with Google Translate)

Recent levels high due to rain. A fair few Brits centred around Area47 putting up classy videos/photos on fb ATM. I've seen high level videos from Lower Ventur ache, Sanna, Oetz, Inn shoots & Landeck gorge. Looks like most main rivers will be running good for some time.
