Jason Eason reports from the bridge down the run is wood free!
August 2011, strainers blocking "Lemon Drop" have been pushed to the side clearing a center run. Good News!
A few changes. RJH no longer manages the lower section of the quarry. The City, (CBJ), has gated and posted no trespassing (mainly to keep ORVs out). Miller Construction is using the upper quarry and the new bridge and quarry above the prison. A private security firm has turned boaters back at the gate when they parked along the river. So far by parking at COSTCO and carrying up, paddlers have had few problems. The road is heavily used by dump trucks and boredom, pressure and methamphetamines, could prove fatal for a boater in the road. Best times to paddle: Before 6am or after 6pm and Sundays.
Nozzle was clear late summer 2006, but the limbo logs below the bridge are hung up just above Lemon Drop, AKA, Smoking Tomb. You'll see the rootballs, but you need a new line past this section. Likely river left, yes left.
