River Description


Lazer has slides and shoals.
The stream is very pretty and remote. No gauge. In lieu of that, at the put-in bridge, I've measured down from a seam in the concrete bridge piling. Once the water was 24" below the seam while the Flint was near flood; another time it was 36" below the seam. Lazar's flow was ample but not big each of these times.  Considerable flatwater separates the rapids, of which there are mostly Is and a couple worthwhile IIs. The riverwide stairstep ledge near Coleoatchee Ck confluence is either a III or an impressive II. Swims could be long and lumpy but the routes are straight through and recovery (eventual) not a problem.

I typically don't bring a playboat here, regardless. Considerable flatwater separates the rapids, of which there are mostly Is and a couple worthwhile IIs. The riverwide stairstep ledge near Coleoatchee Ck confluence is usually regarded a III but when I've been there it seemed more like an impressive II. Swims could be long and lumpy but the routes are straight through and recovery (eventual) not a problem.
