Smokey, I was looking at my photos and they kind of suck. They were taken from eddies with a disposable. I'll look into scanning a few though. I boated a Dagger Vortex (10'-8") and the other guys were in a Rockit and a Descente. We went to boat it around the peak runoff but backed off after looking down from the overlook and seeing a frothing white ribbon and hearing the roar. I would recommend a med/low level because of all the wood. Long pants and good soled booties for the brush and rocky scouting. It might be possible for a bold crew to day run it but i can't imagine hiking out If it got dark. It was a memorable trip and we had a good time but I doubt i'll be going back

I would love to hear other boater's opinions of Deep Creek. our Trip was an Epic! With the improvements in equipment and the step up in boating levels, The whole canyon may be boatable. The 1/8 (?) mile gorge with the slot exit w/ logs could be sweet if it somehow was clean. Someone should go in there, but budget two days if not starting at daybreak. PS, Google Earth shows the run well and the gorge is visible. Look for a short spot where you cannot see the stream. It is a hard right in the top half

More info. The Google Earth coordinates of the Slot portage are 39 43'04.91"N 107 11'29.88"W more or less. Bear with me as this is from memory of 11 years ago. You'll know the nasty rock water sections as you get near but the slot could sucker one in if you boat scout into the gorge.
