This creek is not runnable at 2.33. A friend and I did the full 13 miles (by GPS) when the reported
gauge reading was 2.33 We probably portaged and walked in the creek 25% of the time. At least and
additional +1 foot is needed to make it at all runnable. We encountered many hazard that would pose
problems at 3.33 feet or higher. Some very scenic area and lots of fish life.
