Report

Account We ran this 8-4-09 at 1000 cfs (droping 200cfs per hr) At this level it was a fun run with swift moving water most of the way. It could be paddled up to 1500+cfs no problem. The largest waves were 2ft high and no danger with a bit of boat control. There were some large strainers about 1.5 miles into the run. There were previous post about poor water quality but that was not the case. The creek was very muddy from all the runoff but clean and not smelly at all.
