River Description

The forest service decommissioned most of the roads after the 1996 floods. The part of Fish creek that is still easily accessible is a class III-IV flush that is good fun and often free of wood.

Paddlers can drive up the paved road until it ends and keep hiking up the decommissioned road until they choose to put in.  There are some worthwhile bonus rapids if you decide to hike a ways.
