Last year the river wide blockage of logs was still on Bear Valley Creek if my memory serves me. We launched May 18th 2010 and ran down Marsh, close to 4.5 and rising on the gauge. Got stuck several times on Marsh, but were able to push off each time and got down Marsh in a fairly easy day (late launch - 12:45 pm, got to dagger by 5 pm or so).
Dagger is a serious rapid and only you can choose after scouting it if it's right for you to run. The portage trail is very well established. Personally after looking at it I have decided to run it several times per trip. My raft, other peoples rafts, and a shredder so far
All but one of the runs have been smooth, when in doubt go further left than right!
