Not as good at these levels. (Reportedly better play either lower or higher.) Gauge (6,240 sq.mi. drainage) is immediately upstream of reach. A dam just upstream can quickly/suddenly alter flow, generally with a diurnal (daily) pattern.

River Description

A couple hundred yards of 'big water' waves, swirls and boils. A kayak rodeo is held here each year in August.

Note: Make certain to go to the 'Flow Info' tab to read about the 'split' range of flows which make this reach most playable.
