Account Bear Creek Rapid has several lines to choose from. There's the right ramp, middle creek, waterfall and far left sneak. So, if you are into petoning onto shallow rock or getting worked in a hole, Bear Creek is guaranteed to please. The dam on Calderwood Lake was featured in the movie "Fugative" starring Harrison Ford. I like the sign better than the movie. God's Dam is a river wide 4 foot ledge that can be run almost anywhere. There is a fairly meaty hole on the right and rocks on the left. So, somewhere in the middle is the preferred line. This rapid actually isn't at the put-in, but it is the first rapid of note on the run. It is river wide and usually run straight down the center. At 1150 the hole at the bottom is easy to punch. At 1500 its easy to swim.......
