I run this section on 10/19/2019 @2730cfs.This run took us about 2.5 hours in 8'creek boats.Over half of run has 1'and 2' waves so have a skirt.This run can be run with beginners at this level .If run in lower levels it will be a difficult rock garden .
I have run this section many many times, from the largest flows as the ice from the lake comes over the dam, to pretty low.... It is never dangerous for an experienced whitewater paddler, although at times it expands enough to flow into the woods around the river and hazards in this area include getting pinned on trees..... Do NOT run the dam..... But a few little waves are found just below the dam at the put in off of cross lake road.
The whole run takes about 3-4 hours during good flow and is usually fun for the whole family, including kids.
Drainage: 958 sq.mi.
10% flow: 1,480 cfs
Alltime max: 14,300 cfs
