A dam has been replace with rock-arch rapids. Downstream, a couple of ledges may provide some surfing opportunities (at certain flows). The Luce Line State Trail runs along river-left, providing a handy carry-up for this short stretch.
For those looking for a longer run, it does appear there may be some additional shoals downstream. Check just upstream and downstream of 2nd Avenue SE, at Adams Street SE, at 160th Street, and (not convenient to check other than by running the stretch) a ways upstream of Front Street / Hwy.22 (which would be a run of ~7.9 miles).
Drainage area at our listed put-in is about 445 square miles (as calculated by USGS StreamStats Beta software).
