Matt MuirDetails
Matt Hobin shared: "I floated the East Fork Lewis in Washington state at about 1900cfs (a bit above
recommended) on the 22nd of December from Lewisville Park to Daybreak. As one might expect with
recent moderate flow spikes on this river, the character of the run has changed a bit. Until/unless
more floods clean things out, there are some serious tree hazards near half a mile above Daybreak
Park. I found several spanners and main channel rootballs that required a short portage and quick
thinking despite the mild gradient of this stretch. Please be advised; I'd hate to see someone get
hurt on this normally easy piece of river."
