Lee has cleared major strainers from their earlier positions below the ledges. Where they ended
up...I have no idea. Advise caution as I only scouted from the road way (Winters Run Rd).

Irene has left numerous LARGE strainers. Many are on the approach to the ledges. These a BIG and
must be portaged. Please, DO NOT try to run these.

Four natural shelves covering about 100 yards of Winter's Run just before bridge at RT 7. These are
nice for beginners after a little rain. Runoff had these runable at 68cfs yesterday, when the
boulder field below the dam (Singer Rd) was still unpassable. Scouting at low water, no big rocks
to worry about if you flip. Going back to scout today with guage @ 133 cfs

Winters hit 500cfm. Beautifully runnable. From Singer to Rt 7: Smoth fast and fun! Great to learn
on! Watch for floating wood running in the current! All pics are from Singer Rd to Rt 7. The steps
above Rt 7 disappear at this level and turn into pretty good standing waves. Also, watch below the
hairpin left with ledges on right. There is a surprisingly sticky hole (pictured) then its on to
negotiate through the submerged island (recognizable by the trees in the middle of the creek). Stay
river left close to the island.
