We just paddled 1 mile upstream from Reed Road and had a nice afternoon picnic in the shade of a private gravel bar, then returned back the car. The water level was low, but still mostly kayakable, except over the partially exposed gravely areas.We just paddled 1 mile upstream from Reed Road and had a nice afternoon picnic in the shade of a private gravel bar, then returned back the car.

We got in at exactly 1100 hours and reached the take-out point at 1730. The water level was at a near perfect CFS rate, as one would have to try to get stuck on shallow gravel areas. An extra 100 CFS would make the river condition ideal, with lots of spots having fun riffles with small standing rolling waves. There are several trees that need a chainsaw taken to them to make this section completely trouble free for the average newbie kayaker.We got in at exactly 1100 hours and reached the take-out point at 1730.

Water level was okay, not great, but still worthy of a marginally 'Good' rating. Our boats ran into may many hidden rocks, and the less experienced kayaker got stuck on low gravel bars a few times. But the current was still moving along sufficiently. We got in the water at 11:40 and arrived at Kyle's at 5:30. A flat tire on the kayak trailer, along with a couple spills by Cynthia and Andrea in the canoe, prevented us from being able to hike in to Hemmed-In Hollow.Water level was okay, not great, but still worthy of a marginally 'Good' rating.

This was a good float but the water was almost too low to be considered good. Another 4" to 6" of water would have been much better if not ideal. There were several long, still pools on this stretch. Very few other floaters were encountered.This was a good float but the water was almost too low to be considered good. Another 4 USGS Gauge Data:

The current was slow and the trip took the entire day (8+ hours). Had to portage around downed trees once and scraped and dragged through gravel in several places.The current was slow and the trip took the entire day (8+ hours).

Although I got out only a few times because of shallow water, we rubbed the bottom quite a bit and got hung up on rocks a few times. I wouldn't want to do this much lower.Although I got out only a few times because of shallow water, we rubbed the bottom quite a bit and got hung up on rocks a few times.

The water level was fine for this trip, but we counted perhaps 6-8 obstacles that were technically challenging in a canoe or for an inexperienced kayaker. In several places, we had to help others or exit the boat to portage around or through particularly troublesome obstacles.The water level was fine for this trip, but we counted perhaps 6-8 obstacles that were technically challenging in a canoe or for an inexperienced kayaker.

The water level was ideal for canoes. There were several obstacles along the way that we walked around for the benefit of the babies. Kayaks were able to traverse most of them with ease.The water level was ideal for canoes. There were several obstacles along the way that we walked around for the benefit of the babies.

The water was high but not dangerously so. We went over some nice haystacks just below the Finley. Someone reported much higher haystacks above the Finley.The water was high but not dangerously so.

Camped on Rymer gravel bar the night before. First part of trip was uneventful. Right after Blue Spring, a thunderstorm with lots of lightning and thunder dumped nearly two inches of rain on us. Although this level was considered good, we all agreed that a 3-6" higher water level would have been ideal. Camped on Rymer gravel bar the night before. First part of trip was uneventful.
