This was a lazy summer trip with low (but acceptable) water levels. The water was clear and flowing slowly with only a few faster riffles. We spent most of the day on a gravel bar about 3/4 of the way through, cooking burgers for lunch and swimming and snorkeling. Julian paddled his own boat and spent his time back and forth between our different boats. He also swam a lot with his boat in tow.This was a lazy summer trip with low (but acceptable) water levels.

The water level was perfect for this float. There were a few tricky places and one portage around a log jam but nothing was particularly dangerous or difficult, even for beginners. At this level, the water is fast and clear.The water level was perfect for this float.

The upper stretches (above Woods Fork Road South) had several bedrock drops. This river at least until Busiek was pretty low with significant dragging in some riffles and some tricky spots that were difficult to navigate with low water. We cleaned up a few snags and strainers. Once we got past Busiek, the water level was a bit better and the navigation was less technical.The upper stretches (above Woods Fork Road South) had several bedrock drops.

An absolutely perfect day, with excellent water flow and stream clarity the whole way. Got in at 11:40 and took out at 18:30, stopping for two lazy lunches on shady gravel bars. The nasty snarl just below Jackson Spring needs more work done on it, due to a large tree completely crossing the river obstructing the navigable path. The Pedelo Creek snarl area has another minor tree obstruction that a chainsaw would make quick work of. Note: Ed Underwood, the property owner at the Reed Road take-out spot, has gated his entrance to the river. He hasn't begun locking the gate yet, only utilizing a loose chain looped into a slot on the movable gate. Speaking with another person who also parked on the property, he said Ed put the gate up since the Linden property owners had closed that access to the public. He said Ed would continue allowing access to the river so long as it didn't get crazy or out of hand. I think it's only a matter of time, though, before idiots will ruin Reed Road as a usable access to the Finley.An absolutely perfect day, with excellent water flow and stream clarity the whole way.

Once we reached the confluence with Bull Creek, the complexion of the stream changed from smallish creek to a fuller river. No snarls or obstructions were encountered though either. The water level was GREAT too, with very little paddling even needed to keep moving. We shouldn't hesitate to get on this section of the upper Bull when the discharge is reading 1000 CFS at the Walnut Shade gauge.Once we reached the confluence with Bull Creek, the complexion of the stream changed from smallish creek to a fuller river.

This was our maiden attempt at floating Woods Fork. Anytime the Bull Creek gauge is between 500-1000 CFS, then Woods Fork should be able to be floated. The stream is a major contributor to Bull Creek, but typically it doesn't have enough water flowing to make it sufficiently navigable in a kayak. Recent heavy rains, though, made it look float-able, so we checked it out. Even with the non-typical extra water flow we scraped across LOTS of low water areas, but never enough to have to get out and pull the kayak over. Gravel bars ABOUND along this 3-mile section, as there seems to be great spots to stop for lunch around nearly every turn and bend. There are 2-3 areas with snarls that require a minor portage around them. Two snarls would benefit from a small chainsaw being brought along. The third obstruction has a couple big trees spanning the width of the river with their trunks nearly all submerged making effective use of a chainsaw on them almost impossible. There are also two spots where barbed wire is strung across the stream, but easily floated either under it or over it. One spot marks the eastern boundary of Busiek. The other is 9/10ths of a mile downstream from the Busiek boundary.This was our maiden attempt at floating Woods Fork.

This is the float that will forever be known as the "Fuck the Beaver" float. It begins with a huge sinkhole full of mud near the put in requiring a portage of 50 yards or so to the water. (Note: walking thru the sinkhole may result in the loss of your shoes.) Just downriver from the put in, a downed tree makes a tricky obstacle. We ended up with two boats tipped over. Otherwise, this was a quick, pretty stretch of river with only one or two other minor obstacles, the last of which claimed my hat, sunglasses and lawn chair. Fishing is unknown since my new birthday pole was broken in 3 pieces on this float. This section was fairly busy with multiple groups of floaters. However, we did find a nice shaded gravel bar for a wonderful lunch. In addition, there were lots of long, low water level stretches that did not require portage at this level but that might make this section less than ideal at a lower level.This is the float that will forever be known as the USGS Gauge Data:

Several other groups were seen on the river this day, some of whom were in their own floating parties. We started around 1300 hours and were off the river by 1730 despite a few fairly lengthy breaks.The water was high and flowing well but still mostly clear.

Despite this float being on the DoJ (and literally finding a Port-a-Potty outhouse IN the river!), it was a great day to be on an Ozarks stream. The water was clear and gently moving along. The fishing wasn't off-the-charts good, but we all did catch a few here and there. There was one tree down about 1.5 miles up from Cox requiring us to do an easy portage around it.Despite this float being on the DoJ (and literally finding a Port-a-Potty outhouse IN the river!), it was a great day to be on an Ozarks stream.

Not thinking through the full potential for a HUGE schmuck-a-rama to happen on the DoJ this Saturday, we arrived at Shelvin Rock to find the river access PACKED with fellow paddlers, cars, and trailers. At almost no point during the day could one not see at least a dozen kayaks either up or down stream from us. Regardless, it was a wonderful day to be outside on the river (even the DoJ) and everyone had a great time.Not thinking through the full potential for a HUGE schmuck-a-rama to happen on the DoJ this Saturday, we arrived at Shelvin Rock to find the river access PACKED with fellow paddlers, cars, and trailers.

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.

This little 3-mile section of the Finley has several great fishing holes, as well as some good swimming holes. The water was moving nicely and only one area could benefit from a chainsaw clearing an easier navigable path through it. One down side is having to portage kayaks over the dam at Linden (as all the property above the dam is private homes). It's not difficult to do so with two people, but the climb down the damn can be quite slippery and precarious. I certainly wouldn't want to attempt doing so with a very strong current flowing over the dam.This little 3-mile section of the Finley has several great fishing holes, as well as some good swimming holes.

This little creek is the perfect stream (IMHO). Small, compact, cozy, canopied with trees leaning in over much of the water, with tons of twists and turns around many bends in the river (especially so in the section above Swinging Bridge). We caught the water level at a point just before it may have been too low, but it still turned out to be an excellent outing with perfect weather. Fishing was actually poor for everyone accept Galen, who managed to catch an elusive McCloud Trout (approx. 4-5 lbs).

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.

We encountered a few portage obstacles from flooding damage last year. Some places were tricky because the water was low enough for exposed bedrock and some other obstacles. We decided this water level was probably the minimum for a comfortable "Good" float for this river.We encountered a few portage obstacles from flooding damage last year.

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.

The lake level was at 916.41 but we were in a still pool for the last mile of the trip. For future trips, the level should be lower if one expects to get a current for the entire trip.The lake level was at 916.41 but we were in a still pool for the last mile of the trip.
