Before you all get really excited, I'd make sure you have a takeout plan for Cheese unless you're planning on going the distance to the resevoir. I was in that area last summer and the EZ road down to the old TO is gated since the fires. You can still get in there, you just need to have a good plan.

Search old posts for more info.

Hey I went and scouted this run in Febuary. The road in coming from Lake George is blocked by numerous downed trees. Not the kind you can just get out and pull of the road either. The road down to the take out was gated and a sign that said no motorized vehicles. The hike out of the canyon with just a pack was almost too much. 3 miles up that road was a pain in the butt. At the top of the first rapid there is a log jam that has well over 30 logs in it. It's pretty much a bridge on river left that you can walk across out into the middle of the river. River right was cover with snow so I couldn't tell if it was clear. But well before I ever got down there I saw 3 or 4 trees that you would have to portage on the way down. I came to one spot, that I couldn't recognize, that had no real good way around if you wanted to portage. Rock faces on both river left and river right. You would probably have to climb up and over a couple hundred feet in elevation to get around. Or just jump into the river. Probably about a 10 to 15 foot drop. Yeah it could have been the water fall but the lead up to it was cruel and unusual. With the ice and snow it was hard to really have a good idea of what was going on so just take my advise semi-lightly. Things could change if the run off pushes allot of it down. If anyone decides they want to give it a whirl let me know. I might be interested. I will probably hike back into it again now that the snows gone and see what I can do about the road and figure a better way down to the take out. Last time I hiked out 12 miles back to my truck. Not recommended.

That description is consistent with what I heard DOW guys say about deadfall in the Hayman Fire area - trees are still falling down and getting in the river all over the place.

CRC lists the Lake George gauge. That's what we went off of the one time I've been there. It was around 210cfs if I remember right. Seemed like a good level to get to know it.

I'd vote for the Lake George gauge to be listed, but I'd check both anyway.

Looks like the road is open:

Dan call me if you go!
