I ran this section below 147 to rt1. When you get down to Rt. 1, 3 of the bores under the bridge
are inaccessible due to strainers. Make sure you scout this from the little penninsula on river
right. The rapids look pretty pushy against the strainers. I chose to portage the penninsula and
put in on the right side of it. This allows a carefull approach the the far right bore (this is
partially blocked as well) but the bore is clear. You miss out on what looks like a great II-, but
the reward is on the other side of the bridge. A you come out, get up to speed and dig your boof
stroke in! Very fun little rapid. The wood piles have been cleared. Bores 1 and 2 are clear for use

Tim P. Ran this in May 09 after some rainy days. If water is pouring over the dam not a bad trip.
Took about 31/2 -4 hrs. for a shorter trip get out at Harford Rd.

Ran this one in a canoe on 4/2 and there was nowhere near enough water.
