On 6/5/17, paddled from the confluence with Shellrock Creek 2 miles down to Harriet Lake (above
this run). Much of this run is visible from the road or with a short walk into the woods. Very
continous Class II, with a couple of Class IIIs at about 600 cfs outflow from Timothy Lake with
only one mandatory portage in the first mile, followed by numerous portages in the last mile to the
lake including a giant, difficult logjam. I highly recommend getting out after the bridge at the
Harriet Lake cutoff. The continous gradient in the first mile makes for few eddies and should be
approached with extreme caution. Rob Cruser
