With only ~18 square miles drainage at our listed put-in, this is fairly small creek which will take significant snowmelt or rain to bring it to runnable. Satellite views of this section are often obscured by trees, which suggests wood (hangers, sweepers, deadfall, and snags) is likely to be a very common problem. Very cautious and alert boating will be necessary to keep from broaches and pins, especially if you catch it at higher flows.
(As calculated via USGS StreamStats Beta software) Drainage area at our listed put-in is approximately 18 sq.mi., and increases (from various tributaries entering along the listed run) to 29 sq.mi. by the take-out (thus likely about 60% increase in flow).
Drainage area after this confluence is ~22.8 square miles.
Drainage area after this confluence is ~26.4 square miles.
This road dead-ends at the river. Satellite views appear to show a defunct bridge (or ford/crossing?) at this point, which could mean some caution on approaching should be taken, in case it poses a hazard to navigation (low clearance, water disturbance, or dead-wood accumulation).
Satellite view appears to show a bridge (likely private, farm bridge) crossing the stream.
For current information call Tim Ryle aka Mr. Smoothie @ 1-812-852-2225. Tim lives about a mile away from this little GEM and gets on it at every chance. Hard to believe but there is a really Great surfing wave at the put in. Have Fun.
