ConditionHigh - The river is high and potentially dangerous, especially for the young and / or inexperienced. Normal stream obstacles are sometimes difficult to navigate. Extended distances can be attempted, but canoe travel may not be advisable.
Notes icon NotesThe Corps was releasing water from the flood gates but also started generating water at noon. The siren didn't sound but Brianne said she heard the turbines start up. The water was flowing well until about two miles from the take out where it slowed considerably, presumably because of the influence of the re-regulation dam (we've noticed this in past years, too).
