River Description

At high water this turns from a Class 4 to a solid Class 5 which is continuous. Because of this a strainer would sneak up on you quickly, so watch out.

1.5 miles down there will be a boof ledge. Keep away from the center or land of rock. Once in town things will calm down.  Scout the dam after the next bridge, the hole at the bottom can be nasty at high flows. The Class 3 will continue to the takeout.
