I just did a driveby about an hour ago. My indicator rock in NF Falls is still too high out of the water, and I don't mind banging down stuff. Hold off another 24 hours. Tomorrow morning shoudl be good. It IS spilling over the Dam in Evergreen and the feeder creeks to Bear - Cub, Maxwell, Etc, are FULL of snow and water. We hiked up Maxwell for about 2 hours and there is still 1-3 feet of snow on the ground.....this is going to suck!!!

I really really doubt that it will be flowin by tuesday. While it is warm during the day up here in evergreen what the creek really needs is for it to be above freezing at night which is not going to happen yet. Based on the forecast.

Honestly I am ok with that. I am a little freaked out by the whole early season thing. Looks like we have a little snow coming later in the week.

Yeah I agree. It probrably won't go for a while (unless we get some good rain this week). I'm OK with that too.

Got sick of watching the gauge. It is my spring break and all, I just couldn't resist any more. So we ran it this afternoon. Don't waste your time. major boat molestation. I knew that going in but what are you going to do. Sometimes ya just gotta go. So here is the wood report. Every thing is navigable, but not safe. There are so really poorly placed logs in there. The biggest hazard in my opinion, is in the last major rapid. Not sure what it is called. There is a little five foot boof in the entrance, then you go left along a cliff wall. As you trun the corner there is a jumbble of rocks and you boof the middle. Hope that rings a bell. Anyway just above the boof in the center there is a river wide log. That is tough to get over the top of. It definantly isn't safe. We pulled out some wood as we were paddling down. Unfortuantly we didn't have time to pull out this log. That is the major hazard just wanted to let everyone know. I will try and get back there to pull it out. But I leave town on friday and I'm not sure I will have the time to get back there. There is one other spot in the river that needs a chainsaw. It is in a much tamer section of water. I hope that helps anybody who is thinking about going around 100cfs or 120. Those hazards might still be in there.
