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 NotesPut in again at 16:30, paddled upstream to Braden Road (with only half a kayak paddle, since I stupidly took the two male halves) and lazily fished the deeper slow pools while drifting down stream. There are a couple spots in this stretch that would benefit from a small chain saw being brought along on the next trip. The water level was good for this sort of up-stream trip: not overly swift, but high enough to make the downstream trip easy without dragging.
FishingPoor - 0 - 2 fish caught
