We ran into a couple of obstacles that would have been very challenging in a canoe (one was probably impossible). Other than that, the river was at a very good level. Travelled 19 miles in 7 hours, including several brief stops.We ran into a couple of obstacles that would have been very challenging in a canoe (one was probably impossible).

With the recent heavy rains SW MO had been receiving the water level was excellent. However, as expected, the flooding that resulted from all the rain created new river snarls that presented challenges to the inexperienced kayaker/canoeist. Right off the bat a poor decision to NOT take the left channel over the right managed to dump Sarah, hubby, HB and TVS trying to assist them (RRRRRR!). I lost my fishing rod, tackle, reading glasses and jerky. Fingers won't be pointed, but I knew this was the wrong choice to take. We got on the river just before 11:00 AM and reached the take-out point around 4:30 PM.With the recent heavy rains SW MO had been receiving the water level was excellent.

The water level for this stretch was perfect. The water was nearly crystal clear but it flowed continuously from the time we put in. In fact, we had trouble finding a gravel bar where we could swim comfortably. Julian paddled his own kayak for this entire stretch. A couple of areas were a little sketchy for him since he was new but there were no problems.The water level for this stretch was perfect.

This was a technical section of Flat Creek, much more so than we expected. Several downed trees and some tricky log and brush traps were present, some of which took down some boats. The water level was very good with just a few places being too shallow to float successfully (and most of those were because of the aforementioned obstacles forcing us to choose less than optimal pathways for the water level). This was Kathy's first river trip (although she'd been in a kayak before) and Julian's third solo kayak trip. Both performed admirably despite the technical difficulties.This was a technical section of Flat Creek, much more so than we expected.

Several trees and root wads were disrupted from recent floods. Several places were pretty tricky with the stronger current going directly through trees and into obstacles.Several trees and root wads were disrupted from recent floods.

Weather was perfect, water level was excellent. Only a couple of downed trees were blocking the river where newbies felt the need to portage around them. Got on the river at 10:45 and exited around 16:30.Weather was perfect, water level was excellent.

Almost everyone was able to get through all the riffles without getting out of their boats, but several places were too shallow to float without dragging at least some. A lot of debris was in the river from recent floods. This is definitely at the low end of what could be considered a comfortable floating level.Almost everyone was able to get through all the riffles without getting out of their boats, but several places were too shallow to float without dragging at least some.
