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.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
