Put in as close to the dam as you can. The best section is at the top. Below the dam the stream dumps into a gorgeous pool. When we were there we saw 5 bald eagles lazily watching/ fishing for monster trout below. We were told they are there all the time.
The rest of the run was a mild class 2 which was quite scenic with a few ledges. We took out after the campground with all the RVs. This would be a great place to host a beginner weekend clinic.
scouted it out today @ 488 cfs. the short section below the dam could be fun at this level for a local class 3. nice looked hole at bridge. not sure about the off limits thing but there are no posted signs on river right between the road below and to the dam. pics
Rode this today - plenty of water. The first 200 yards right after the dam was a great section with a great little drop - the rest of the ride was pretty slow. But we went back and did the first part a couple more times.
