ConditionLow - River is low but can still be floated. Some riffles are okay but most come with significant dragging and might need a portage. Float lengths should be reduced to accommodate low flow, dragging, and portages.
Notes icon NotesThis 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.
FishingGreat - 15 - 30 fish caught
