River Description

Anyone who chooses to check out this run is highly encouraged to scout as thouroughly as possible from the road (which parallels the river, but is far enough distant from it to merit binoculars) or to hike the intended stretch prioro to a run. The run is steep enough, and action is so continuous that by the time you see an obstacle (strainers and snags) you may not be able to find much for eddies in time to pull out.

While it may be possible to make longer runs than what is listed here, as you go further upstream, the creek gets steeper and wood generally becomes more of a problem. Again, the rule would be scout everything before running anything!

Gage Descriptions

No currently known gauge for this reach. Boaters will no doubt prefer a fairly narrow range of levels here, due to the steep gradient and continous nature of the run. The sign upon the flood control dam (which serves as the end of the run) says the drainage area at that point is 26.7 square miles. That small a drainage area, combined with the steep gradient, implies you can count on runoff being very quick.
