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 Gasconade was falling from a recent moderate flooding event. The water was still pretty murky. The flow was moderate with many slow, still pools. The riffles were fine but rare. This part of the river was nice enough but not very scenic. I rode an old prisoner bus from Ruby's Landing to the put-in just upstream of Schlict Spring.
