River wide log jam approx 2 miles above Neal bridge. Unrunnable with poor options for portage.
Extreme danger at this time.

Have done this run at 4700. Very nice run. Starts as flat water, then picks up and soon becomes
continuous wave train. Isolated and water moves fast. The stand-out rapid is Devil's Hole; look for
a creek on the left exiting a rocky amphitheater followed by tree covered bar on left. Easy scout
on left.
DANGER: RIVER-WIDE LOG JAM 3/4 mile below Smith Creek, close to the take out. You should definitely
scout this one BEFORE putting on the river. The scout is easily done by walking to cliff edge where
the road closely approaches the canyon on the way to Neal Bridge. It is 3/4 mile after you see
Smith Creek entering the canyon. The portage is class V and only possible on the left. Do not take
this one lightly.
