ConditionGood - Conditions are ideal for a canoe or kayak. Boats typically will drag on fewer than one-quarter of riffles, if at all, and portages are unnecessary or rare. Normal float lengths can be attempted without a problem.
Notes icon NotesPower generation started a little before the scheduled date and carried us down the river just fine. The water was cool and refreshing and most of the kids spent the better part of the day floating downstream in their jackets instead of in their boats. There is a long, slow pool near the end of the trip, between "Grass Island" and the takeout, about a mile further downstream.
