Just curious about the rock that people are saying looks to have moved. My husband and I did this on 5/16/10, before the huge runoff, at approx. 750cfs + or -. The rock that becomes the pourover/hole at higher water was totally exposed and looked to be in the same spot it's always been. Nothing looked out of the ordinary and we've run this stretch at least 100 times over the years. Then I went back and did it a couple of weeks later right at 3000cfs. The rock was a pourover at that flow, but again, didn't look like it had moved and the rapid looked as it always has. Any chance you're talking about the rock in the little rapid above Yarmony? At higher flows there is a hole to miss on river-right in this 'starter' rapid and I'm wondering if that might be the rock that people are saying has shifted?
As someone who has been the passenger for hundreds of Yarmony runs, and then as someone who just rowed it for the first time a few weeks ago at 3000cfs, this rapid is easy as long as you are familiar with it at high and low flows, and know to stay left the entire way, then work center at the bottom to avoid the wall on the left. I've never felt that there was a comfortable line on the right, rock exposed or not exposed, but that's my opinion. I had a blast rowing it my first time at 3000cfs! Great little wave train to ride out once you get past the rock/pourover/hole.
