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 was perfect for this trip. The weather was too, right up to the point when a small rain shower developed and caused us to stay under tree cover / shelter for a while. Wet from the rain the temperature drop made it seem much cooler than it should have been for June. Still, a great impromptu Solstice Day float.
FishingGood - 7 - 15 fish caught
