I ran Spring Creek from N Shilo to Holford Rd at 3200cfs and then again at around 2600cfs. This section was fun, kinda short but it was as far as I could stand to carry my kayak from where the take out was. Watch out for sewer lids in the middle of the creek, they wernt a problem at 3200cfs, but at 2600cfs they started to pop out of the water. They were easily avoidable though. If anyone wants to run this after the next big rain let me know and we can leap frog our cars at the entrance and exit. kylezgraham at gmail dot com

Got in at around 3200 cfs and had a blast!! Highly runnable, fast movement all the way, 4 ft. high waves at parts but nothing to dangerous for an experienced kayaker. Bring your spray skirt! Launched under the bridge at Renner rd. and took it all the way to jupiter, took about 30-45 minutes.
