I paddled this at a little over 3'. No features or drops. It would be Class II except for the
strainers in the top 4 miles. Very dangerous!

Gertler says the minimum level on the gauge is 1.4 feet. This is not right. I was there with a
gauge reading of 2.15 and the creek was very low. The gauge is in a pool behind a 2' weir, and with
two inches of water spilling over the lip of the weir registered the 2.15 ft. A couple more inches
over the weir would bring the creek to life. Also, the difficulty level seems to be lower than
class III, but perhaps a lot more water would bring it up.
