Boulder Creek Elephant Buttress might need some wood clean up

I spent a little time today pulling some wood out of Elephant buttress, nothing major, one small strainer log and some misc small branches stuck here and there.

However there is a stack of larger logs just waiting for higher water. It would probably take two or three people to move them. They are located right at the start of the main drop on river right. They are all out of the water, but if the creek does come up, there is a possibility that they could flush.

I drove by Barker on Thursday afternoon - it was definitely spilling then, but barely. The inflows from the Source are pretty meager. The warm weather starting on Monday should finally kick off whatever season Boulder Creeks is going to have...

It is spilling, but not much coming in. In talking to the dam manager on Friday, we will need a quick fast warm up to get any decent boatable flows, he was not encouraged.
