We took this day to clean up some log jams. The first two, within a mile of our starting point, took up the majority of our clean up time. These weren't completely cleared but hopefully enough that a flood will clear things out. We also cleared several other smaller blockages along the way.We took this day to clean up some log jams.

Van Someren, TomVan Someren, Tom The current was flowing really great, however the visibility into the water was murky from silt still not having settled (due to the recent rains). Despite having just paddled this section of the river the Saturday before, I decided to go again (on a whim and moment's notice) since the weather was perfect for it. The fishing turned out pretty good too.The current was flowing really great, however the visibility into the water was murky from silt still not having settled (due to the recent rains).

This was an ideal water level for this stretch of river. Several blocked passageways and some obstacles were encountered. We cleared some of these with a chainsaw and manpower but there is much work to be done.This was an ideal water level for this stretch of river.

The water level was excellent! Despite breaking my $135 carbon paddle IN HALF, this float was great (near 80 degree weather, with some very good fishing). Had to spend too much time babying my crudely repaired paddle, but even with that I managed to catch four nice small mouth bass.There are two tree snarl obstructions in this segment of the river. The first one located at these coordinates, 37.045881, -93.065229. It's fairly easily portaged around and with a chain saw could probably get a small pathway cleared through it. The second tree snarl (coordinates 37.042722, -93.072017) is MUCH larger and more difficult to portage around. It would take some significant time and effort to fully clear the river of this major obstruction. Photos of both snarls can be seen on Flickr.The water level was excellent!

The water level was perfect for this trip. The weather was too, right up to the point when a small rain shower developed and caused us to stay under tree cover / shelter for a while. Wet from the rain the temperature drop made it seem much cooler than it should have been for June. Still, a great impromptu Solstice Day float.The water level was perfect for this trip.

This was a near-perfect-conditions day to be on the river, especially for early April. The water level was still flowing really great from semi-recent rains, and the air was very clam and warm from a cloudless sunny day. Too bad the fishing was rather poor (Renee managed to catch a small carp). The large spread-out tree snarl that occurs where Pedelo Creek joins the Finley has changed again where it can be made MUCH more easily navigable with a day's worth work with a couple chain saws.This was a near-perfect-conditions day to be on the river, especially for early April.

Van Someren, TomVan Someren, Tom Paddled one mile upstream from Reed Road and fished the couple deeper holes where the water wasn't flowing too quickly. The current was actually fairly aggressive to paddle upstream, especially so over the shallower gravely areas.

Van Someren, TomVan Someren, Tom Originally this trip began with the purpose of me clearing away some downed trees. But stupidly leaving the chainsaws at home it simply became a fishing trip. The water level was PERFECT for a lazy day of casting the entire way. And the weather was GLORIOUS, too, with clear blue skies and an 83 degree temperature and no wind. There are still large tree obstructions that need clearing along this 6-mile stretch. Two new large trees have fallen together at these coordinates (Originally this trip began with the purpose of me clearing away some downed trees.

The water level was ideal for canoes. There were several obstacles along the way that we walked around for the benefit of the babies. Kayaks were able to traverse most of them with ease.The water level was ideal for canoes. There were several obstacles along the way that we walked around for the benefit of the babies.

This little 3-mile section of the Finley has several great fishing holes, as well as some good swimming holes. The water was moving nicely and only one area could benefit from a chainsaw clearing an easier navigable path through it. One down side is having to portage kayaks over the dam at Linden (as all the property above the dam is private homes). It's not difficult to do so with two people, but the climb down the damn can be quite slippery and precarious. I certainly wouldn't want to attempt doing so with a very strong current flowing over the dam.This little 3-mile section of the Finley has several great fishing holes, as well as some good swimming holes.

Van Someren, TomVan Someren, Tom Put in late in the afternoon around 15:30 and took out right before dark, 20:30. Found a spot to park the car well off the road that wasn't marked Private Property / No Trespassing and paddled upstream 1.28 miles. This section of the river isn't as favorable to paddle upstream as it has WAAAAY too many extended gravelly bars the kayak has to be pulled through (so it's more like a hike with your boat). The fish weren't biting at all until right before dusk when I caught three very nice size smallies and a goggle eye.Put in late in the afternoon around 15:30 and took out right before dark, 20:30.

The water level was very good, but this trip included at least two non-trivial portages and several very tricky spots, even for a kayak, due to downed trees and overhanging branches.The water level was very good, but this trip included at least two non-trivial portages and several very tricky spots, even for a kayak, due to downed trees and overhanging branches.

This was a fantastic float and a good day to be out. Several of the riffles had significant amounts of dragging, a few required a short portage or pulling the boat through the water. At least one set of snags caused a significant portage across two gravel bars. We spent some amount of time clearing debris and cutting limbs to make future floats better.This was a fantastic float and a good day to be out.

Van Someren, TomVan Someren, Tom A *gorgeous* day to be on a river, so I spent the entire day paddling up stream, swimming, fishing, eating, and soaking in the solitude of having this stretch of clear stream all to myself. Fished several holes and long calm sections extensively from shady areas and utterly KILLED it with the number of fish caught. At the spot where I stopped paddling up stream I spent probably 90 minutes catching something on nearly EVERY cast (it was unbelievable for a while!). Most were 6-7" goggle eye and small sun fish, but several were nice sized large and small mouth bass. Just a perfect day.A *gorgeous* day to be on a river, so I spent the entire day paddling up stream, swimming, fishing, eating, and soaking in the solitude of having this stretch of clear stream all to myself.

This was a very enjoyable and worthwhile trip. However, the water level was almost too low for a trouble-free float. Nearly every riffle had some dragging and most places came with some real work to keep moving forward. We had to get out a few places.Like most wild rivers, there were some downed trees that had to be portaged. A chainsaw would have been helpful for this trip and for cleaning up the river. Ironically, one downed tree and the Braden Road (2.2 miles downstream from put-in) low-water bridge could be floated under, which wouldn't have been possible with significantly more water.There were several springs and seepy bluffs along this stretch of river.This was a very enjoyable and worthwhile trip.

The weather was perfect, the fishing was great, but the water level was pretty lousy (despite the recent rains that occurred earlier a few days before). The CFS had unfortunately dropped below a "Good" rating. Several 12-14" large mouth bass were caught throughout the day, though. The river obstructions located at N37.045881 W93.065229 have become worse and need significant cleanup to make this area easily navigable again. Portaging around it in lower water levels has become a real hassle. The second tree snarl (coordinates N37.042722 W93.072017) now has a wide easy pathway through it.The weather was perfect, the fishing was great, but the water level was pretty lousy (despite the recent rains that occurred earlier a few days before).

The water level was about right for this stretch. More water would have reduced dragging on some riffles, but it would also have made the obstacles and portage areas much more dangerous. This is a technical stretch that required a half-dozen portages or more, two of which were pretty substantial. There are also several places that are tricky, especially for a canoe.The water level was about right for this stretch.

We paddled 1/2 mile up to a downed double-trunk sycamore to cut it out. Both of us had to paddle back to the put in one time to retrieve something to assist in the effort, resulting in 2 miles total. Much of the work was done and the obstacle is definitely better than it was. But, we couldn't move the bottom log completely out of the way. The pool between the put in and the obstacle was pretty slow. One small riffle between was easily paddled but was very low.We paddled 1/2 mile up to a downed double-trunk sycamore to cut it out.
