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 water level today was ideal for canoes and kayaks. Unfortunately, there is no gauge on Swan Creek, but Tom checked the level yesterday and found the recent rain had brought it up to flood stage. This stretch of the river was nearly continuously flowing so this stretch went pretty quickly. We stopped several times along the way to swim and take care of debris. Brian hit 1000 lifetime miles on this trip. Julian hit 300 and Michelle hit 250. Galen caught most of the fish (50+) while Tom and Chris each caught several.
FishingExcellent - 30+ fish caught
