Current is a relative term. 3 years ago it was ripping down at approximately 6 miles an hour and we saw no need to motor at all and we were out in a hurry. Now it seems to have slowed down to maybe half of that and we kicked the motor on because the going seemed pretty dang slow.
Current really slowed down to almost nothing for the last couple miles as the lake is backed up to near the bridge. People have been typically taking out on an access road/service ramp on river right a mile above hite just past the dirty devil confluence. Cut banks made the take out less than ideal last month, but these conditions seem to change.
