More from Deluge: "We put-in on the plateau near Pleasant Hill cemetery and took off in the Valley below at the Rocky River bridge. 8-10 miles downstream Great Falls Lake usually backs up at least to the Hwy 30 bridge. So the confluence with Big Laurel Creek is usually underwater. Great Falls Lake is between 785-805 elevation in drought to high water.
"A side note: the take-out to Cane Creek is the Highway 30 Bridge which is downstream of the confluence with Dry Fork?? It always seemed to be lower water here than a few miles higher up near Fall Creek Falls SP even though more minor tribs come in. Unlike other rivers in the area, we never noticed the exact location of the loss of water. Hope this helps."
Paddled it in 1996. Wrote an article about it and another river with sinkholes in May/June 2000 issue of American Whitewater.
