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.

Weather was perfect, water level was excellent. Only a couple of downed trees were blocking the river where newbies felt the need to portage around them. Got on the river at 10:45 and exited around 16:30.Weather was perfect, water level was excellent.

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. There were a few places where we dragged, but nothing was unmanageable.This was a good float with a strong south wind, luckily at our backs most of the day.

This was an excellent float trip. The water was nearly perfect (a little bit higher would have been nice but it was fantastic just like this). Joe caught more than 50 fish. I caught nearly 30 or more. Even when we didn't catch anything, we could feel fish hitting the lure.This was an excellent float trip.

The gauge information is misleading here. The standard is to choose the value at noon on the day of the trip, but it's clear from our observations that we were riding the flood crest at least part of the day (and the Windyville gauge is quite a ways upstream from this stretch of river). When we reached Lead Mines, the gravel bar where we left the truck was flooded and nearly stranded us until the water receded. Originally, we planned to put in at Prosperine but decided we could float the stretch between Barclay and Prosperine faster than doing the long shuttle to the other side of the river. I'm not sure that was actually true but it certainly wasn't a huge difference in time.The gauge information is misleading here.

Tom: I'd rate Saturday's float just below "Good". The water level condition wasn't "ideal", as we still hit bottom many times going through riffles, but didn't have to get out and pull over gravel bars (unless you REALLY effed up and chose your path poorly). Al: I'd say it was "Good". There were maybe four or five riffles I got stuck on, but I probably could have avoided at least a couple of them!Tom: I'd rate Saturday's float just below USGS Gauge Data:

The water level was at the very cusp of being too low to float. This stretch was very technical, with several downed trees, narrow water, and difficult places to maneuver, even with a kayak. It is not recommended for a canoe or for inexperienced paddlers without the expectation of a lot of portages and upsets. The locals here mentioned Spring Creek (a tributary of Crane Creek) as being a good float with high water.The water level was at the very cusp of being too low to 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. This is definitely at the low end of what could be considered a comfortable floating level.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.
