the dilly daily is low and slow right now. pretty much the most rocks out youre gonna see.

id recommend putting in at onion creek (youll see the turnoff from 128 and go down a bumpy road then there are two narrow boat launches, youll have to be adept at turning around a trailer in small areas) and taking out at rocky, or even sandy if you want a longer day. its a good half day onion to rocky...this is where commerc trips switch out peeps or do lunch sometimes. there are 3 straightforward rapids on this stretch. or whatever, hittle is not much further upstream if you want to keep it siimple.

if you went down to sandy or take out there is a lot more flatwater, most noteably whites' lake above the rapid which is a killer and it has doldrums written all over it.

as far as camping, id camp at onion. right across from the put in. but then you have to compete with other private families, drunken river pirates, and the commerc crew. i dont mind but i dont have small ones.

bugs are out but not bad.

oh, and a side note. do NOT rent jet skis and take them up and down the rapids at this level. you WILL hit a rock and endo your craft. take it from me...

just so you know

just because it's diet don't mean it's good for you!
