Good boatable flows? (We need your input to more fully characterize what happens at different flows. Add a comment or report!) Gauge (844 sq.mi. drainage) is about 5 miles upstream (with only minor tribs intervening) so should very accurately reflect flows here.
Location: Central Iowa, approximately 5 miles due South from Webster City.
Shuttle Length: N/A miles. (See details in "Directions" Tab.)
Character: Aging broken out dam provides various waves/holes for 'paddle-up and play'
"Mike" wrote in Boater Talk, "there is on old dam
type structure ... that turns into a great hole(s) ... A little shallow ... it is river wide with
many breaks in it for easy outs. It is so old, it looks like a natural feature in terms of
variations of the holes."
David Weber says, in Boater Talk, "The spot is about a
20-minute paddle upstream (0.5 mile NorthWest) from that bridge ... on the river right
side of the first large island you get to."
This is just 3.7 miles (as the crow flies) away from Briggs Woods Spillway, so (when it's
running) could be a 'two-fer' or each a 'back-up' plan for the other.
