The water level for this stretch of the river was nearly perfect. Like the Little Sac River, there are several bedrock runs that would be impossible to traverse with lower water levels and dangerous to walk (due to slick, algae-covered rocks). The water was clear and the scenery was good as well. This stretch is an easy one for beginners and canoes.The water level for this stretch of the river was nearly perfect.

The night was cool but good. A huge band of thunderstorms in Kansas prompted us to get up early and pack our gear, get an early breakfast, and head home. We made it off the river by 900 hours, home by 1000 hours.The night was cool but good.

The 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).The Corps was releasing water from the flood gates but also started generating water at noon.

This was a technical section of Flat Creek, much more so than we expected. Several downed trees and some tricky log and brush traps were present, some of which took down some boats. The water level was very good with just a few places being too shallow to float successfully (and most of those were because of the aforementioned obstacles forcing us to choose less than optimal pathways for the water level). This was Kathy's first river trip (although she'd been in a kayak before) and Julian's third solo kayak trip. Both performed admirably despite the technical difficulties.This was a technical section of Flat Creek, much more so than we expected.

The water level for this stretch was perfect. The water was nearly crystal clear but it flowed continuously from the time we put in. In fact, we had trouble finding a gravel bar where we could swim comfortably. Julian paddled his own kayak for this entire stretch. A couple of areas were a little sketchy for him since he was new but there were no problems.The water level for this stretch was perfect.

A 2-3" rain in S Spgfld loaded up Wilson's Creek enough to send a wave of water down the James. We caught the very tail end of it on this trip. The water was not fast but we managed to do the trip without dragging. The water was comfortable for swimming. There were a lot of boats on the water, primarily from rentals along the river.A 2-3 USGS Gauge Data:

This section of the James was relatively fast-moving given the very low rainfall we've had. It was also fairly crowded with rental boats and others. Swimming and fishing were both good and the water was comfortable. Chris and I cut up a tree obstruction on one particularly tricky run.This section of the James was relatively fast-moving given the very low rainfall we've had.

The 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.The water level today was ideal for canoes and kayaks.

This was a fantastic float and a good day to be out. Several of the riffles had significant amounts of dragging, a few required a short portage or pulling the boat through the water. At least one set of snags caused a significant portage across two gravel bars. We spent some amount of time clearing debris and cutting limbs to make future floats better.This was a fantastic float and a good day to be out.

The water level was pretty low but most areas were navigable. At least a few spots required a short portage or the boats dragged some or a lot (especially the canoes). This was a fishing crew and there was very little caught (just two trout) during the entire day. This stretch is not long but with the short days and the low, slow water, we had to keep moving to make it off the water before dark.The water level was pretty low but most areas were navigable.

Power generation started a little before the scheduled date and carried us down the river just fine. The water was cool and refreshing and most of the kids spent the better part of the day floating downstream in their jackets instead of in their boats. There is a long, slow pool near the end of the trip, between "Grass Island" and the takeout, about a mile further downstream.Power generation started a little before the scheduled date and carried us down the river just fine.

We paddled 1/2 mile up to a downed double-trunk sycamore to cut it out. Both of us had to paddle back to the put in one time to retrieve something to assist in the effort, resulting in 2 miles total. Much of the work was done and the obstacle is definitely better than it was. But, we couldn't move the bottom log completely out of the way. The pool between the put in and the obstacle was pretty slow. One small riffle between was easily paddled but was very low.We paddled 1/2 mile up to a downed double-trunk sycamore to cut it out.

The water level was about right for this stretch. More water would have reduced dragging on some riffles, but it would also have made the obstacles and portage areas much more dangerous. This is a technical stretch that required a half-dozen portages or more, two of which were pretty substantial. There are also several places that are tricky, especially for a canoe.The water level was about right for this stretch.

This was a good float with a strong south wind, luckily at our backs most of the day. I saw several snakes in or at the edge of the water not marked on the log because I couldn't positively identify them.

This was near the low end of what would be considered a good float. A few of the riffles were too low and some places ended up being traps for the boats because of the low water.This was near the low end of what would be considered a good float.

Almost everyone was able to get through all the riffles without getting out of their boats, but several places were too shallow to float without dragging at least some. A lot of debris was in the river from recent floods.

The river was low and slow, but we were down far enough that we easily floated through the riffles without dragging. Even with slow water, ample stops, and a backwater excursion, we made the short trip in about four hours.The river was low and slow, but we were down far enough that we easily floated through the riffles without dragging.

Water was muddy and filled with logs. Mostly, the river was navigable without too much trouble, but one point had a log jam that required a 150+ meter portage.Water was muddy and filled with logs.  Mostly, the river was navigable
