Middle of Falls fell in! We ran mostly right and a few mid left at 1' and had one bottom-hit off the left side. Fence and house being built near falls, so put in at Big Rock Rd bridge (scrapey under 6'') and be courteous of campers at Falls. The last rapid 'Ampitheater' packs a stiff hole at the bottom that is not portagable at this level. The first boater through can set safety below on river left for the hole. I would go in higher next time, but with caution ready to hike back up to the falls.
New ownership! Fence and house being built near falls, so put in at gauge bridge (scrapey under 6'') and be courteous of campers at Falls.
1.5 miles past bridge take a Right
2.5 mi down that turn Right on Prater
bear right down dirt road at gate, follow to top of steeps - park and check road quality to lake take-out.
Falls - consider 6" minimum, but has been run down to 0" (scrapey, not soft).
Perhaps 1' max for the gorge run.
Elevation at the bridge is about 860. Lake is about 650. 1.5 miles.
Day of 1"+ winter rain or day after 2" +
If it isn't too scrapey at Big Rock Road bridge
you can probably get down it. If there are
waves and water in trees huck falls
repeatedly, as the gorge may be too much.
Permits are not required for this reach.
