We did this run at 1400 cfs on Nov 26, 2014... There is room enough to park one truck at the putin behind the guardrail. At this level, the river is really low. We could still make our way down each rapid, but there was a lot of pushing off rocks instead of paddling. There were 5 or 6 rock garden rapids that could be a lot of fun at about 3000+ cfs.
Also, there was a tree down across the entire river about halfway down the run... luckily, it was in flat water and we could get under it, but any higher and we would have had to portage.
Felt and looked a lot like Snake Creek without the big drops.
Look for Sweetwater Creek to be 1000 cfs and rising or locally heavy rains of 2 inches or more.
Permits are not required for this reach.
