River Description


There are about 6 rapids in this short stretch that you will have opportunity to scout on your hike up the creek.  When run, you will have about 20 feet to bail before the final sluice/rapid (#6).

With just over a half-square-mile of drainage (at put-in), it will take major snowmelt or significant rain to make this a 'go', and the window of opportunity is likely to be extremely limited (during, or within an hour, after a good rain). USGS StreamStats Beta software lists other interesting and potentially relevant info:
Average Soil Permeability is 1.001 inches per hour, which suggests that when soil is dry/unfrozen, an inch of rain per hour will NOT run off but will soak in.
Thus, in general, it will take rainfall of over an inch an hour before anything hits the creek!

That said, if you try for this and find it too low, you can look at the immediately adjacent run on Bay Creek. With 10 square miles drainage at its put-in, you'll have far more likelihood of catching it runnable. (Though that's still pretty small.)

Drainage area at our listed put-in is approximately 0.57 sq.mi. (as calculated via USGS StreamStats Beta software). Yup, just over 1/2 a square mile! We're talking tiny watershed. Hence, as the picture captions tell, it takes a good storm to put enough water in here, and quick timing to catch it as soon as the rain quits
