Two other posts going about this right now... I'm also curious as to results. I'm going to call the ranger station tomorrow (forgot to call today) as I've gotten no responses about it in the last few days on the buzz. I hear the rangers are still the best resource this time of year.
That being said, word around the campfire is someone mid-Jan did a hike/drag/raft out? Not sure on details obviously.
I may go in there in a week or so (depending on what the rangers say). Will keep the buzz updated on what they say.
