River Description


This may not ever be worth the hassle, but is being included for some 'completeness'.

Downstream of Prickett Dam (for about 1.7 river-miles) there is litle but flat and flowing (good current) water, until it encounters a fine rocky/ledgey shoals. Access would be via an 'unimproved' road, then hiking in (and back out) about a quarter-mile to find this (roughly) 130-yard long stretch.

So . . . is this possible? (Is it accessible? Or is that road gated or impassible?) Is it worthwhile? Is there any real play here (in an area much more known for spring creek-boating runs)? Or is this totally not worth anyone ever wasting time to check out? We need your input!
