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 NotesThe 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.
