Ran this section today at a little over 1000CFS. Clean with no channels blocked with wood. Rocks were well padded and holes were mostly wave holes. Really fun run but really felt like one big long rapid. A swim would be very consequential due to the continuous nature. We put in at the bridge where the W. Walker goes under 395 and took out at the river park just south of Walker. The AW Description does not mention that Large changes occurred to the streamed after the 1997 flood and apparently much of the river was altered to give it a similar but easier character to things like the N. Fk. of the Payette. I felt like it had bits of class IV munchiness with Class III moves but Class V consequence at this level. Higher flows would make it considerably more scary, and lower flows would make it more technical. we felt like the 1000-1200 level was optimal flows for this run.
