Runnable flow range is 900cfs up with the best between 1200cfs and 1600cfs. Most of the run is
class II swiftwater with one class III where Binarch Creek enters from river right. A great step up
for boaters comming off the upper Spokane. Water quality is alway great and this area is beautiful.
Many small play waves. Run takes about an hour so laps are easy. Putin is at a pullout just below
the outlet damn and the takeout is at Dickensheet Campground.
