The gauge information is misleading here. The standard is to choose the value at noon on the day of the trip, but it's clear from our observations that we were riding the flood crest at least part of the day (and the Windyville gauge is quite a ways upstream from this stretch of river). When we reached Lead Mines, the gravel bar where we left the truck was flooded and nearly stranded us until the water receded. Originally, we planned to put in at Prosperine but decided we could float the stretch between Barclay and Prosperine faster than doing the long shuttle to the other side of the river. I'm not sure that was actually true but it certainly wasn't a huge difference in time.The gauge information is misleading here.

Some parts of the river were low but we never had to get out to portage. Very few if any tricky areas. This is a great float for beginners and kids.Some parts of the river were low but we never had to get out to portage. Very few if any tricky areas. This is a great float for beginners and kids.

This was a good float with a strong south wind, luckily at our backs most of the day. I saw several snakes in or at the edge of the water not marked on the log because I couldn't positively identify them. There were a few places where we dragged, but nothing was unmanageable.This was a good float with a strong south wind, luckily at our backs most of the day.

The day started with several groups on the river but they quickly outpaced us leaving us mostly alone, particularly after NRO. One gentleman at an access point just upstream from our takeout was particularly entertaining with storytelling and an accent that was typical for the area.The day started with several groups on the river but they quickly outpaced us leaving us mostly alone, particularly after NRO.

The water level was pretty low but most areas were navigable. At least a few spots required a short portage or the boats dragged some or a lot (especially the canoes). This was a fishing crew and there was very little caught (just two trout) during the entire day. This stretch is not long but with the short days and the low, slow water, we had to keep moving to make it off the water before dark.The water level was pretty low but most areas were navigable.

This stretch of the river is very scenic. Libby got caught up behind one log jam and tipped into the water. Other than that, this is a pretty easy stretch.This stretch of the river is very scenic.
