We did this in early March 2002. There is nothing class 4 about this. There's hardly anything class 3 about it. Maybe at VERY high levels it may push to a class 3 creek but when we did it, it was mostly some class 2 ledges and 1 drop that may turn into a class 3 at high flows. It would be a fun run for an intro to creeking but your time would be better spent on Anewakkee Creek.

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.
