I think (i wasn't driving) that the Takeout is on 111 just past Dunlap. The putin is at the top of the hill at a pull out on the left. Yesterday it was a somewhat epic hike in down steep grade snowcover rock about 3/4 mile.
The run was very continuous in nature after about the 1st half-mile of 2/3 water. After that the gradient picks up and it narrows down for a couple of good miles. Good slotty drops, most 6 - 10 feet. Scout all the blind ones, as there are some trees in bad places. The thermometer was a burly 14 degrees at the putin. There is a gauge painted on the takeout bridge. Yesterday it was at 0'. Of the people that had run it before, they considered this optimum. On a run of 6" Harry said it was a portagefest.

Not the 'roadside quickie' you think from the shuttle. Put in by hiking down where road bends away from the river.
Numerous rapids including undercuts, big holes, and some logs. One rapid has road-rock debris and is particularly nasty. Another is quite long and packs a sticky, riverwide hole above the steepest section. 2 10' ledges near the end, and the 2nd packs a stiff hole but is sneakable on right. Good creek with some mank, kinda like Suck Cr.
