Ran down to page yesterday 450 cfs. I agree that it is Full of growth. had a hard time with the
length of my canoe getting through everything. I had one mandatory portage. It really is just a
giant tree sieve.

Ran lower sections this week: 3/18/2010: 89B to Page Springs: Boated/hiked first mile and pulled
out after being frustrated by overgrowth. Channel choked with small diameter growth. Scouting
downstream, seemed to open up with better rapids, but still had lots of blind choked channels. May
be more manageable with lower flow. 4.2 on Page Springs gage. ~800 cfs per USGS gage. 3/16/2010:
Page Springs to Cornville: Great Class II, open channel, lots of good surf waves. 3.62 on Page
Springs gage. ~ 550 cfs per USGS
